TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras (AP) - Ousted Honduran President Manuel
Zelaya is now approaching Honduras in a Venezuelan plane, asking
the military that kicked him out to please let him land "in the name of God."

Speaking live from the plane on the Telesur network, Zelaya says he is just minutes away from landing.

Zelaya faces arrest by the interim Honduran government. He asks
that the soldiers now occupying the airport instead return their allegiance to him, "in the name of God, in the name of the people,
and in the name of justice."

But the politicians who ousted him aren't backing down, and violence has broken out in the huge crowd surrounding the airport Sunday, with at least one person killed so far, according to an Associated Press photographer at the scene.
