The nephew of interim Honduran President Roberto Micheletti was found in the north of the country with bullet wounds to his head and chest

MOSCOW, October 26 (RIA Novosti) - The nephew of interim Honduran President Roberto Micheletti was found in the north of the country with bullet wounds to his head and chest, a Spanish news agency said citing local police.

The 24-year-old man's body was found Sunday in the woods in the northern city of Choloma, police said. Another, unidentified man was found nearby, also shot to death execution-style.

Enzo Micheletti has been missing since October 23, but his relatives were not willing to disclose this information to the media, EFE News reported citing local police spokesman Orlin Cerrato.

Police did not link the murder to the political crisis in the country after the June 28 coup, which brought Roberto Micheletti to power.

President Manuel Zelaya was bundled out of Honduras by the military, acting on instructions from the Supreme Court and parliament, over efforts to seek an unconstitutional second presidential term.

He was flown to Costa Rica, but returned to the country on September 21 and took refuge in the Brazilian Embassy.

Talks on ways to resolve the political crisis in Honduras have ended in deadlock after the interim government refused to reinstate the ousted president.

Presidential elections are due to take place in the country on November 29.
