- President Manuel Zelaya is trying to push through a change to the constitution to allow the president (i.e. him) to be re-elected.
- A few days ago army general and armed forces head Romeo Vasquez refused to support the move for a referendum on the issue (claiming it was illegal) and was dismissed by his President last night.
- His defence minister resigned, apparently in protest at the presidential decision.
- This afternoon, the country's supreme court has annuled the presidential decree that sacked Vasquez.
- Right now troops are moving through the capital Tegucigalpa and quelling disturbances, supposedly instigated by Zeyala supporters.
- The President has asked the Organization of American States (OAS) for support.
UPDATE: The region is calling out against "an attempted coup d'etat" at the moment.
