Micheletti: US revoked my visas

From the AP
Washington has revoked the visas of Honduras' interim president and 17 other top officials to pressure the Central American nation to reinstate ousted leader Manuel Zelaya, Honduras' government said Saturday.

The interim government expects the United States to revoke the visas of at least 1,000 more public officials "in the coming days," Information Minister Rene Zepeda told The Associated Press...

Micheletti said he was expecting the action and called it "a sign of the pressure that the U.S. government is exerting on our country."...

Washington on Friday revoked the diplomatic and tourist visas for 14 Supreme Court judges, the armed forces chief, the foreign relations secretary and Honduras' attorney general, presidential spokeswoman Marcia de Villeda said Saturday...
"It is not productive, given the history of US and Iranian relations to be seen as meddling."
