Fresh protests broke out Wednesday in Tegucigalpa, the capital of Honduras, as the deposed Honduran president Manuel Zelaya and the de facto government started a new round of mediation talk in Costa Rica.
A clash was reported between high school students and the police in the Kennedy district, the most populated area of the capital city.
Witnesses said a group of riot police tried to expel the students who were staging a peaceful pro-Zelaya demonstration.
Also on Wednesday, Zelaya's supporters rallied in different places of Tegucigalpa for a massive protest.
Some 200 women protestors gathered in front of the U.S. embassy, demanding "less talking and more action at the international field against this coup."
People also marked an artistic and cultural day at the Autonomous National University of Tegucigalpa to show support to the deposed leader.
Meanwhile, an anti-Zelaya organization Democratic Civic Union (UCD) held a protest titled "For the Patriotism and Courage" to support post-coup interim president and ex-Congress leader Roberto Micheletti.
According to the UCD, the protest aims to "support the democracy" and reject Zelaya's return to the Central American country, where the president was dethroned in a coup d'etat on June 28.
Tegucigalpa's mayor, Ricardo Alvarez, said that: "Zelaya can not come to country to retake the power, because he has violated the laws."
Zelaya was ousted and forced into exile in a coup on June 28, after he angered the army, the legislative and the judiciary by insisting on a constitution amendment that would allow him to seek re-election.
The deposed Honduran president reiterated in various occasions that he would return to his country despite all cost, while the interim government said his reinstatement was out of the question.
