TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras (AP) _ The head of the Organization of American States is warning that sanctions may be in store for Honduras.

OAS Secretary General Jose Miguel Insulza says the international community has done ``practically everything that can be done'' to persuade interim leaders to give up power and restore ousted President Manuel Zelaya.

Insulza said at a news conference in Guyana on Thursday it will be ``very hard to turn things around'' by a Saturday deadline set by his organization. He says the OAS will discuss sanctions over the weekend.
