Supporters of ousted leader plan Honduras marches
Tegucigalpa: Supporters of ousted Honduran president Manuel Zelaya plan to begin a five-day march on the country`s two main cities starting on Wednesday, organisers said.
"There will be two marches with people from all over the country. One will go to San Pedro Sula and another to Tegucigalpa," Juan Barahona of a group called the National Resistance Against the Honduran Coup said.
The plan comes amid continued high tensions in the Central American nation, more than a month after Zelaya was bundled out of the country in a military-backed coup.
On Saturday, a Honduran teacher died after being shot in the head while protesting against the de facto government, which threatened to crack down on future demonstrations.
Witnesses have said the man was shot when hundreds of police officers charged a crowd of pro-Zelaya marchers.
He became the third Zelaya supporter to be killed since the coup on June 28.
On Tuesday, Zelaya is expected to travel to Mexico on the invitation of President Felipe Calderon, a member of Zelaya`s entourage said.
