Former Honduran president Manuel Zelaya, who arrived in his country on Sunday after nearly two years in exile, has promised to address poverty and hunger across the nation.

Under a reconciliation accord with Honduras' current president Porfirio Lobo, Zelaya has said he will peacefully pursue the same leftist political course he followed before his ouster.

But rights groups are concerned that the deal allowing his return to the country could prevent further action on such issues.
