Thousands of supporters of ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya converged on the capital Tegucigalpa on Tuesday to demand his restitution as president of the country.

Since Aug. 5, Zelaya's supporters have been flocking to Tegucigalpa from different parts of the country, converging on the government hall in the east of the city and the Central Park. They plan on continuing their march in the major streets of the capital.

The demonstrators, headed by leaders of the National Front of Resistance and Zelaya's family, said they would continue their protest until Zelaya was restored to power.

Zelaya's wife Xiomara Castro told reporters that she would travel to San Pedro Sula, a city north of Tegucigalpa, to show support for demonstrations there.

Meanwhile, Israel Salinas, a leader of the pro-Zelaya camp, said in a statement that the protest would continue and that they would not accept the results of the November elections if they are called by the post-coup government.
