Zelaya leaves for Nicaragua summit

Honduras' President Manuel Zelaya is greeted in Heredia by two Honduran supporters living in Costa Rica, before leaving for Nicaragua to attend the Central American Integration System (SICA) summit, June 28, 2009.

The Honduran army ousted and exiled leftist President Zelaya on Sunday in Central America's first military coup since the Cold War, triggered by his bid to make it legal to seek another term in office.

Zelaya, 56, told Venezuela-based Telesur television station that he was "kidnapped" by soldiers and barely given time to change out of his pajamas. He was later bundled onto a military plane to Costa Rica. (Photo: REUTERS/Juan Carlos Ulate)
