AP Interview: Interim Honduran leader won't quit

The interim Honduran leader says he will not resign despite mounting international pressure to restore the president ousted in a military coup.
Robert Micheletti tells The Associated Press that he will not step down no matter how intense the pressure from the world becomes.
"No. I was appointed by Congress, which represents the Honduran people. Nobody can make me resign unless I break the laws of the country."
Micheletti says he will not reconsider his intention to arrest ousted President Manuel Zelda if he returns to Honduras.
He spoke Tuesday in an interview with AP at the presidential palace.
