Radio broadcasters targeted by Honduran government

The interim leader in Honduras has threatened to put broadcasters off the air.

New rules have been put in place to restrict broadcasters which, in the government's eyes, might "attack national security."

The restrictions follow the closure of two stations by self-proclaimed President Micheletti, who also confiscated equipment from the broadcasters.

He has said they will remain shut down until their owners front the local courts.

The two broadcasters targeted had backed the return of exiled president, Jose Zelaya.
