The latest from Honduras

 |  NCR Today

The Associated Press is reporting that Honduras' interim government has extended a curfew through most of Wednesday. Police and backers of ousted President Manuel Zelaya skirmished throughout the night, and more than 100 people were arrested for vandalism and looting.

Zelaya, who snuck back into the country Sept. 21, remained holed up with a shrinking core of supporters at the increasingly isolated Brazilian Embassy in Honduras.

Diplomats and activists streamed out of the compound late yesterday, and Brazil urged the U.N. Security Council to guarantee the embassy's safety.
