Honduras rebuilds ties with its neighbors

After two and a half decades of mostly military rule, a freely elected civilian government came to power in the Central American country of Honduras in 1982. Maintaining a stable democratic government has been full of challenges in the years since. During what has become known by some as the Honduras Constitutional Crisis of 2009, the Congress staged a coup that removed their standing president, Manuel Zelaya, and replaced him with interim President Roberto Micheletti.

The resulting confusion and instability included politically motivated killings and kidnappings.

Members of the Organization of American States (OAS) condemned the coup and turned on the pressure to restore the government to a democratic structure.
