Zelaya to set up govt seat in Honduras

LA PAZ: A top aide to Manuel Zelaya says the ousted president will set up government headquarters inside Honduras, from which he will lead the "final battle" against coup leaders.

Patricia Rodas, foreign minister of Zelaya's toppled government, says Zelaya is en route to Honduras but she did not provide details as to where he plans to set up the alternative seat of government.

Zelaya himself will announce it when he deems appropriate.

Rodas spoke Thursday after arriving in the Bolivian capital of La Paz aboard the plane of leftist Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.

Chavez is an ally of both Chavez and left-leaning Bolivian President Evo Morales.
