It seems like things aren't getting better for Zelaya. He is still stuck in the Brazilian embassy and has been told again that if he leaves the building he will be arrested. The congress voted 114 to 14 a few days ago against restoring Zelaya to presidency.

On a slightly more personal note, we have a family friend who works at the Carter Center in Atlanta. Before last weekend's elections, she went to Honduras to visit Zelaya and Micheletti and determine if the Carter Center was going to send officials to observe the election - an act that would legitimize the election. She said that the brazilian embassy was surrounded by soldiers in facemasks and that inside there was a handful of international journalists staying with Zelayas, one of them from Democracy Now! In the end, they decided not to observe the elections.
