CARACAS: Honduras deposed president Manuel Zelaya has arrived at the border of the neighbouring country Nicaragua for return to the homeland, when hundreds of supporters of Manuel Zelaya gave him a rousing reception.
Mr. Zelaya has vowed to keep up pressure on the interim government. Exiled Honduran President Manuel Zelaya has returned to the country's border with Nicaragua for the second day running, demanding to be allowed home.
He says he will set up camp on the Nicaraguan side to keep up pressure on the interim Honduran government.
Speaking into a megaphone, he demanded to be allowed to see his family, from whom he has been separated for a month.
On Friday, he made a symbolic crossing into Honduras but withdrew minutes later after being confronted by troops.
The US, which opposed Mr Zelaya's dismissal and expulsion last month, has described his current attempts to return home as "reckless".
The interim Honduran President, Roberto Micheletti, dismissed the brief return as a publicity stunt, saying Mr. Zelaya's action was "ill-conceived and silly".
The interior minister said that if the ousted president had dared go any further, he would have been arrested.
On the other hand, Venezuela President, hugo Chavez in a statement accused US and its allies a big hurdle in the way of deposed presidentís re-instatement. He said that US want to see Honduras rebel government to win the elections, but Venezuela recognizes only the deposed government.
