A judge has ordered the arrest of a former military ruler and seven onetime army and police officials for the torture and attempted assassination of six leftist students detained in 1982, a court here said Wednesday. Judge Ana Pinde ordered the arrest of retired Gen. Amilcar Zelaya, a member of the military triumvirate that ruled Honduras in 1978-79, and whose country house north of the capital, investigators say, served as a clandestine prison for "disappeared" leftists.

The Supreme Court says ousted President Manuel Zelaya will face trial if he returns to Honduras. Zelaya's return to Honduras under a national unity government is a key provision in a plan by a mediator, Costa Rican President Oscar Arias. Soldiers arrested Zelaya June 28 and flew him into exile in Costa Rica after he ignored a court order to cancel a referendum asking Hondurans if they wanted a special assembly to rewrite the constitution. The Supreme Court said Zelaya must keep in mind that charges of treason and abuse of power are pending against him.

A short period of discord between the United States and Honduras, a major U.S. military partner in Central America, appears to have ended. Gone, apparently, are Honduras' worries about the political and economic costs of cooperating in U.S.-planned war games and about construction of military bases for U.S. use. Fears here that the United States might abandon Honduras in the event of an invasion by one of its neighbors seem to have evaporated. Moreover, this country no longer frets about U.S.
