Time is running out for a solution to the political crisis in Honduras, the US State Department said as senior government officials prepared to travel there to try to revive talks. The officials plan to meet with Manuel Zelaya – who was ousted as president in June – and Honduras' de facto leader Roberto Micheletti in negotiations that are expected to last about two days. "I think it's getting quite urgent," said State Department spokesman Ian Kelly, referring to the need to reach an agreement before presidential elections next month. The US delegation includes the top State Department and White House officials who deal with Latin America. (Reuters)
