Only one major development today so far, which is that the Honduran coup regime headed by Roberto Micheletti has threatened to cease all operations aimed at stopping drug imports passing through Honduras on the way to the United States. The pretext for this announcement is the new sanctions which the U.S. State Department put on Honduras after U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton met with legitimate president Manuel "Mel" Zelaya last Thursday. The de-facto governments decision to stop cooperating with drug interdiction was announced by the coup defense minister Adalfo Sevilla, who phrased it in terms of Honduras not being able to carry on the anti-narcotics struggle without now-suspended U.S. financial aid.

I'll check in this evening again to report on any further developments.
