A top aide of ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya said he was heading back to the country Thursday, while thousands of his supporters blocked roads to demand his return to power.
Patricia Rodas, foreign minister of Zelaya’s toppled government, said the deposed president was “on his way” back, but refused to say how he planned to enter the country or when he expected to arrive. Zelaya’s current whereabouts are unclear and Honduras’ interim leaders have promised to arrest him if he returns.

Tegucigalpa, Honduras could become another Tehran by tomorrow night.
Hondurans are trying to get word out by Twitter that they are receiving threatening text messages on their cell phones tonight, telling them to stay inside and not leave their homes tomorrow night.
“Now more than ever I will be the first one out the door,” Honduran Pedro Martinez told Canada Free Press tonight. Pedro Martinez is the pseudonym we gave to the young Honduran professional that Canada Free Press (CFP) walked through Twitter hookup last week.
“Tomorrow might be a bad day,” Pedro tipped off CFP on twitter. “People are infiltrating Honduras thru (sic) Guatemala, El Salvador, and Nicaragua with the intention to create chaos.”
Over in Bolivia, where he’s helping celebrate Bolivian independence, Hugo Chávez warned of “a civil war in Honduras that could spillover Central America,” insisting that the US “withdraw its troops from Honduras.” Chávez also used the opportunity to insult the US, as is his custom, “The crude and bestial hand of the empire is there [in Honduras].”
Venezuelan troops were scheduled to parade during the Bolivian independence celebrations.
