The political crisis in Honduras could be nearing its end after the government agreed a deal that would allow deposed president Manuel Zelaya to return to office.

But in what US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called “an historic agreement” Micheletti agreed to let Zelaya return and serve out the remaining three months of his presidential term. “I cannot think of another example of a country in Latin America that, having suffered a rupture of its democratic and constitutional order, overcame such a crisis through negotiation and dialogue,” Clinton to the New York Times.
