Honduran leaders Roberto Micheletti and Manuel Zelaya are near agreement on how to move past the turmoil that has rocked the country since Zelaya was deposed in a military coup in June. Micheletti negotiator Vilma Morales told reporters at a news conference yesterday that about ninety percent of an agreement to end the political crisis had been reached, but stressed that key issues remain to be discussed.

After deposed President Manuel Zelaya secretly reentered Honduras earlier this week, the country waited in anticipation for what would come next. Thousands of protesters gathered outside of the Brazilian embassy in the capital city of Tegucigalpa where Zelaya was offered refuge, only to be brutally dispersed by military and police forces. At least at least 80 people were admitted to an area hospital with injuries and a nationwide curfew was also imposed by the coup government.

The former president of Honduras, Manuel Zelaya, has returned to the country amidst threats of arrest. Zelaya managed to stay under the radar as he sneaked back into his embattled country, eventually turning up at the Brazilian Embassy on Monday.
"I'm here unarmed and ready to engage in dialogue," Zelaya
told Venezuela's Telesur television network. "I'm the president legitimately elected by the Honduran people."

After weeks of negotiations, it finally looked as though Oscar Arias, the UN appointed mediator and Costa Rican president was making some headway and perhaps had reached a resolution that both ousted President Manuel Zelaya and interim acting President Roberto Micheletti could agree on.
