Honduran general who led coup says he tried to avoid it

Gen. Romeo Vasquez says he wasn't seeking to stage a coup when he refused to help with President Mel Zelaya's plan for a plebiscite that the country's Supreme Court had declared unconstitutional. ''I feel bad about what happened,'' he said. "I tried very hard to counsel the president to find a legal way out of this. There was no way."
