Honduran President Manuel Zelaya was deposed in a coup in June. Zelaya returned to Honduras on Monday, ending… almost three months of exile and bringing the world’s attention to his cause again.

This video is from July reports from Nicaragua/Honduras border crossing, where the body of a Zelaya supporter was found badly beaten. Fingers are being pointed at the police forces – and human rights are being questioned. What do you think?

“The military and the police must respect human rights and ensure any use of force is proportionate during law enforcement operations and in accordance with UN standards. People must be allowed to protest peacefully without fear of being harmed or being wrongfully imprisoned.” – Kerrie Howard, Amnesty International
