Honduras reinstates top immigration official

Honduras' new government has reinstated its top immigration official, 24 hours after firing him, citing "a misunderstanding and a mistake."
Nelson Willy Mejia, the head of Honduras' immigration agency, was dismissed Friday after a Brazilian diplomat was denied entry into the country.
The interior and justice minister, Africo Madrid, said the Brazilian diplomat arrived on a flight from Miami but was denied entry and put on another flight back to the United States. Madrid said the immigration agency apparently acted on orders left over from the administration of interim President Roberto Micheletti, who left office Wednesday when President Porfirio Lobo was inaugurated.
Mejia was reinstated Saturday.
