YouTube Videos Shed Light on the Unrest in Honduras

On June 28, Honduran president Manual Zelaya was overthrown in a military coup and exiled to Costa Rica. Since then, impartial media coverage has been severely limited, making it difficult to understand what's really happening inside the country.  However, a few videos have been uploaded to YouTube by Hondurans documenting some of the demonstrations being held to protest Zelaya's expulsion as well as the new leaders' attempts to suppress the demonstrations.


This following video, En honduro no pasa nada, todo tranquilo (GOLPE DE ESTADO) --which in English is called "Nothing's Happening in Honduras", shows encounters between protesters and armed forces in the streets of Honduras - some of which appear to have turned violent.

Military coup? Everything I've read says the military was upholding the constitution and Zelaya was going beyond his authority.
