Chávez Dismisses Spanish Claim of Rebel Links

Venezuela's president Hugo Chavez denies reclaims that his government has aided the Colombian rebel group FARC and the Basque separatists, ETA, in Spain. A Spanish judge accused the Venezuelan government of setting up a meeting between FARC and ETA in which FARC requested ETA's assistance in the assassination of Colombian officials visiting Spain. The judge has issues arrest warrants for 13 people, including one Spanish born Venezuelan official. Chavez denies the accusations, saying that Venezuela does not support terrorist organizations.
