Concerns about human rights in Honduras have intensified since the democratically elected President Zelaya was forced from power on 28 June 2009 and expelled from the country by a military backed group of politicians. In this document Amnesty International highlights serious human rights concerns which include the increasingly disproportionate and excessive use of force being used by the police and military to repress legitimate and peaceful protests across the country. Media workers and human rights defenders who are legitimately carrying out their vital work covering events have also been targeted.
