Honduran forces blast recordings of sound effects outside Brazilian embassy

The acoustic bombardment, which included recordings of church bells, rock music and military tunes, appeared designed to intimidate Zelaya and around 30 supporters who have sheltered since last month in the Brazilian embassy in Tegucigalpa. The deposed leader said the noise amounted to "torture" and was another violation of human rights by coup leaders who seized power in June. "It can be heard from 20 blocks away. We can't fall asleep," he told a news conference.
