Honduran coup officials may get US visas back

Honduran coup officials may get US visas back

A former Honduran minister says the U.S. State Department is offering her a visa that was revoked after a June 2009 coup deposing former President Manuel Zelaya.
Gabriela Nunez, finance minister under the post-coup, interim President Roberto Micheletti, says she received notice in June that she could reapply.
Nunez said Tuesday she didn't know if other Honduran officials were eligible, but others said some were already traveling to the U.S.
The U.S. Embassy referred all questions to Washington, which didn't immediately respond Tuesday.
The U.S. revoked more than 1,000 visas of Micheletti officials after the coup. President Porfirio Lobo was since democratically elected. Zelaya has returned to the country.
