US official to meet with Honduran president

A senior U.S. official is planning to meet with ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya.
State Department spokesman Ian Kelly told reporters that he expects Zelaya to travel to Washington on Tuesday for a special gathering of the General Assembly of the Organization of American States.
Thomas Shannon, the top U.S. diplomat for the Americas, plans to meet with Zelaya.
Kelly says the United States is still reviewing whether to cut off aid to Honduras. Zelaya was forced into exile after soldiers stormed his palace Sunday.
The United Nations on Tuesday condemned the military coup that ousted Zelaya and adopted a resolution calling on all 192 U.N. member states not to recognize any government in Honduras other than Zelaya's.
