Honduras' president ousted, interim leader sworn in

Manuel Zelaya was ousted after soldiers rousted him from bed and forced aboard a plane bound for Costa Rica. The head of the country's Congress was later sworn in as president, though Zelaya said he would returned and branded a letter of resignation he'd allegedly signed as a fake. The ouster came as Hondurans were to vote in a non-binding referendum on whethe the country's constitution should be changed to allow Zelaya to run for a second term.
