U.S. State Department spokesman Ian Kelly confirmed Zelaya was in Honduras, but could provide no further information.
“We have confirmed that he is in Honduras,” Kelly told journalists, adding the State Department was trying to find out more details of Zelaya’s whereabouts.
Enrique Reina, the Honduran ambassador to the United States, told CNN en Español that he could not divulge exactly where Zelaya was for security reasons.
Rodolfo Pastor, the charge d’affairs of the Honduran Embassy in Washington, said Zelaya was at the United Nations offices in the Honduran capital, Tegucigalpa.
(Later in the story it is reported Zalaya is in the Brazilian Embassy in Tegu.)
