The hunger strikers said in a statement that Zelaya's proposal marked a "major advance" in negotiations but they want a provision for the removal of attorney-generals to have immediate effect rather than being left to future administrations.
Honduran government prosecutors who have been on hunger strike for a month in the basement of Congress rejected a proposal by legislators to let the Organization of American States (OAS) mediate in the dispute.
