VIDEO Honduras -- jailed for protesting

Hondurans loyal to the country's deposed president have faced severe restrictions on freedom of assembly, speech and movement since the country's de facto leaders imposed an emergency order which they said was aimed at preventing the political crisis in the country from deepening.

Two media stations loyal to Manuel Zelaya, the country's ousted leader, were shut down just hours after the decree was imposed last week. Police also moved to break-up pro-Zelaya demonstrations in Tegucigalpa, the Honduran capital.

Scores of Zelaya supporters were arrested by security forces at the height of the crackdown, with many transferred to high-security jails. Monica Villamizar visited the largest women's prison in Honduras to see how the inmates were faring.
