Troops close Honduras radio station

Honduran soldiers have raided a radio station aligned with Manuel Zelaya, the ousted president, and shut down its operations.

David Romero, the director of Radio Globo de Tegucigalpa, said on Monday: "Soldiers assaulted the radio this morning, took over the station and took it off the air."

He said that all the staff had managed to "escape" and that no arrests had been made.

Radio Globo has a reporter inside the Brazilian embassy where Zelaya has been staying since he sneaked back into the country.

The move to close the station came a day after the interim government announced a media clampdown and a ban on unauthorised gatherings.

The restrictions were announced on the eve of what Zelaya has called a peaceful "final offensive" to mark the three-month anniversary of the coup which ousted him.

Supporters of Zelaya plan to gather in the Honduran capital, Tegucigalpa, after the country's interim government threatened to close the Brazilian embassy for harbouring the ousted leader.
