Interim Honduras government says open to early election

TEGUCIGALPA (Reuters) - An interim government set up after a military coup in Honduras said on Thursday it would be open to bringing forward a November general election to resolve a crisis over the ouster of President Manuel Zelaya.

Roberto Micheletti, head of the caretaker government, also told reporters it would be possible to hold a national referendum on reinstating Zelaya, although it would be difficult to do so right away.
