UN General Assembly condemns coup in Honduras

The U.N. General Assembly is condemning the military coup in Honduras and demanding President Manuel Zelaya's immediate return to power.
The world body adopted a resolution by acclamation Tuesday calling on all 192 U.N. member states not to recognize any government in Honduras other than Zelaya's.
Zelaya was forced into exile in Costa Rica after soldiers stormed his palace early Sunday morning.
He was in the assembly chamber for the vote, which was greeted by sustained applause from diplomats in the hall.
Zelaya thanked the assembly for the "historic" resolution that expresses "the indignation" of people worldwide at the coup.
