Honduras' interim government ordered Venezuelan diplomats to leave the country as the international community threatened new sanctions on the Central American nation if negotiations fail to resolve the crisis following the overthrow of the president. Venezuelan Embassy Charge d'Affaires Ariel Vargas said he received a letter from the Honduran Foreign Ministry ordering his diplomats to leave in 72 hours. Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has been the most vociferous critic of the government that overthrew his ally, Manuel Zelaya, on June 28. The interim government accused Venezuela of meddling in Honduran affairs and of threatening to use its armed forces against Honduras, according to a copy of the letter obtained by the Associated Press.

Iran has closed the offices of a former Afghan warlord who opposes Afghanistan's interim government and the strong new U.S. role in that country, one of his aides said Sunday. The closing of Gulbuddin Hekmatyar's offices in the Iranian capital, Tehran, and the eastern city of Mashhad appears to be a conciliatory gesture toward the United States.
