President of Honduras under siege

The deposed president of Honduras, Manuel Zelaya, is under siege in the Brazilian embassy and is being attacked by sound.

SOA Watch has been pointing out that the military coup in Honduras, overthrowing the elected government, was led by graduates of the School of the Americas, a training centre in the USA for military and police from Latin America.  Yet another reason to close the college.

Update, 30 October 2009: Today the Guardian reports good news, well it looks that way.  The coup leaders have agreed to reinstate the ousted president.
