US Resumes Honduras Aid

The U.S. has announced it is resuming aid to Honduras after the country’s new president, Porfirio Lobo, was sworn into office, the Star reports. The U.S. has cut off more than USD30 million worth of non-humanitarian aid in June 2009 in protest of the coup that toppled former President Manuel Zelaya. Meanwhile, Brazil, Mexico and Canada have announced they will not restart aid to Honduras because they do not recognize Lobo, citing that the de facto government organized the November elections.
