"The Honduran government violated human rights by causing the deaths of 20 people in the seven months after the 2009 ouster of President Manuel Zelaya, an Organization of American States report said Thursday. Eight of the 20 victims were assassinated and 12 others were killed during street protests, an OAS committee concluded. The panel studied Honduran events between June 2009, when Zelaya was whisked out of the country at gunpoint in his pajamas, and January 2010." (07/07/11)
