A Honduran high school teacher who was shot in the head last week in a protest against the June 28 coup died Saturday in a hospital.

This is the third death since the June 28 coup which ousted President Manuel Zelaya and forced him into exile abroad.

Roger Abraham Vallejo, a teacher in the capital city, was wounded last Thursday by a policeman when thousands of people demonstrated on a highway demanding the reinstatement of Zelaya.

Other two victims were also Zelaya's supporters, both killed in clashes between protestors and police, one on July 5 and the other on July 24. Aside from the three deaths, 2,400 people so far have been detained and more than 100 others wounded by police, he said. Other two victims were also Zelaya's supporters, both killed in clashes between protestors and police, one on July 5 and the other on July 24.

The head of Honduras' human rights committee, Andres Pavon, Saturday denounced the post-coup government led by Roberto Micheletti for the violent crackdown on Zelaya's supporters.

Pavon accused the government of contracting a group of Israeli private security men to advise the police on how to aggressively control protestors.

"All these illegal and violent actions are being documented and will be included in a report that will be presented later to the international community," he said.

"In addition to the three confirmed deaths, we are investigating other suspicious murders that could be caused by the army and police," he added.
