Hundreds of sympathizers of Honduras' ousted President Manuel Zelaya blocked on Thursday the main entrance to the national capital Tegucigalpa, demanding his restoration to power.

Workers, syndicalists and farmers announced on Wednesday their plan to block highways and bridges as well as stage demonstrations in Tegucigalpa to demand Zelaya's reinstatement.

The protesters blocked the north exit of Tegucigalpa at El Durazon community and later blocked the exit to the south.

In the west of the country, they blocked the exits to Santa Barbara and Gracias Lempira.

Meanwhile, the Honduran police requested the protesters to make sure that their activities are peaceful.

Police spokesman Hector Ivan Mejia told the local media that the police will be ready to go with the protesters in order to ensure there will be no clashes or damage to the infrastructure.

Mejia said that the police has received reports about infiltrating foreigners, some even carrying weapons with the purpose of stirring up violent actions.

Meanwhile, President of the Unitarian Federation of Workers (FUT) Juan Barahona said that the demonstrators are not armed with weapons, sticks or stones, and that their protests will be pacific.

Zelaya was ousted on June 28 in a military coup and forced into exile in Costa Rica.
