SALT LAKE CITY -- The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints says all missionaries in Honduras are safe and staying in their apartments as Church leaders monitor the country's political situation. Local members are supplying the missionaries with food and water.

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says the United States believes the unrest in Honduras "has evolved into a coup" and that officials believe the situation needs close watching.
