Amazing images from Honduras

This image from the recent stand-off at Toncontin Airport in Honduras really moved me.

Ordinary people came to greet ousted President Zelaya (a friend of Hugo Chavez and Raoul Castro) as he tried to return to the country.

His plane flew over the airport a couple of times before aborting its landing attempts and headed for Managua, Nicaragua. The plane was not given permission to land as military personnel and vehicles blocked the runway.

Another day, another police crackdown, another military coup, another clampdown, the lowdown, the breakdown. Sigh!
