WORLD BRIEFING / HONDURAS

FROM TIMES WIRE REPORTS

The Supreme Court says ousted President Manuel Zelaya will face trial if he returns to Honduras.

Zelaya's return to Honduras under a national unity government is a key provision in a plan by a mediator, Costa Rican President Oscar Arias.

Soldiers arrested Zelaya June 28 and flew him into exile in Costa Rica after he ignored a court order to cancel a referendum asking Hondurans if they wanted a special assembly to rewrite the constitution.

The Supreme Court said Zelaya must keep in mind that charges of treason and abuse of power are pending against him.
