1 dead in Honduras as military blocks Zelaya's flight home

Ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya failed Sunday to return to Honduras. The military-backed government there blocked the airport's runway to prevent Zelaya's plane from landing. At least one person was killed as police and soldiers fired tear gas to break up thousands of pro-Zelaya demonstrators who'd swarmed the airport. The drama was broadcast live throughout Latin America.
