Honduran leader marks 1st year amid protests

President Porfirio Lobo has completed his first year in office with greater international recognition, as well as persistent domestic protests by opponents who support ousted former leader Manuel Zelaya.
Lobo says the world isolated Honduras following the June 2009 coup that ousted Zelaya. But he says the country's increasing recognition since then "makes me view the future with optimism."
More than 100 countries now recognize Honduras.
Zelaya says that Lobo's first year has yielded "results that are discouraging and negative."
Zelaya supporters marked Lobo's first anniversary Thursday with marches in the capital to demand constitutional reforms. Zelaya is living in exile in the Dominican Republic.
