President Zelaya addresses UN Assembly by phone

PARTICIA RODAS BACA, Minister for Foreign affairs of Honduras, held up her cell phone to the microphone so President Zelaya could address the Assembly via telephone from the Brazilin embassy in Tegucigalpa, the Honduran capital, where he has been holed up for just over a week.

Mr. Zelay said he wanted to dispel any doubts as to whether or not his country had been gripped by a dictatorship. He said he had been subjected to a coup d’├ętat, one that had oppressed the rights of the people. When the people had been silenced, a serious crime had taken place.
