Ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya said he will return to his country this week, bolstered by strong international support. World leaders including Barack Obama and Venezuela's Hugo Chavez have condemned the coup orchestrated by the Honduras military. Zelaya was taken from his home on Sunday morning and flown to Costa Rica. The interim president of Honduras' Congress, Roberto Micheletti, has said Zelaya could be met with an arrest warrant if he attempts to return to Honduras and regain control of the government.

On Monday hundreds of Honduras citizens took to the street near the presidential palace, protesting their leader's sudden disposal.
