TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras (AP) - Hondura's congress has voted to
accept what it claims is a letter of resignation from President Manuel Zelaya, hours after soldiers seized the president and flew him out of the county.

Congressional Secretary Jose Alfredo Saavedra has read a letter read purportedly signed by Zelaya and dated Friday.

In a show of hands, a majority of the members of congress voted Sunday to approve the resignation.

But Zelaya told CNN the resignation was "totally false," and said he is still president.

The letter attributes the resignation to "the polarized political situation" and "fundamental health problems."
