Zelaya in Brazilian Embassy: Honduran Forces May Seek His Arrest After Breaking Up Protests

We've just received this update regarding ousted president Manuel Zelaya's return to Honduras:

Right now we are in our house because of the curfew. Yesterday at 4 p.m., buses were overcrowded and the streets were crazy with people stocking up, afraid that the curfew could be extended indefinitely. It was extended last night.

Radio Globo has reported that soldiers entered the Brazilian embassy this morning, but this has not been confirmed by other news sources. Earlier this morning police used tear gas to break up the protesters who held vigil all night.

No idea what is next.
