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”.
