Ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya on Thursday began his trip home amid fears his return could start a wave of violence in the already impoverished Central American country.
Zelaya, who was deposed in a military coup on June 28, announced his plan to return to Honduras hours after the talks between his delegation and the post-coup government, mediated by Costa Rican President Oscar Arias, failed Wednesday.
He departed from Managua, capital of Nicaragua, at about 4:15 p.m. local time (2215 GMT) to Nicaraguan municipalities bordering Honduras. The ousted president is expected to enter Honduras at a time between Friday and Sunday.
