De-facto Government Issues Brazil an Ultimatum

Reuters - Brazil says won't comply with Honduras ultimatum: Brazil's President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva said on Sunday his nation would not comply with a demand from Honduras' de facto government to decide the status of ousted President Manuel Zelaya in 10 days. He demanded an apology from Honduras' de facto leader, Roberto Micheletti.

CNN - Honduras is accusing Brazil's government of instigating an insurrection within its borders. "Since the clandestine arrival to Honduras by ex-president Zelaya, the Brazil embassy has been used to instigate violence and insurrection against the Honduran people and the constitutional government," the secretary of foreign affairs for Honduras' de facto government said in a statement late Saturday night.
