Colombia claims FARC leaders are hiding in Venezuela

VHeadline.com News Editor Patrick J. O'Donoghue writes: Colombia's Foreign and Defense Ministers say they will hand the Venezuelan and Ecuadorian governments evidence that Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) chiefs are in both countries.

Colombia Foreign Minister, Maria Consuelo Araujo and Defense Minister, Juan Manuel Santos have been appearing on Colombian radio and TV shows to ensure ample coverage of the accusation.

* Last week, President Alvaro Uribe had announced that FARC leader, Raul Reyes was hiding in Ecuador, while Ivan Marquez was in Venezuela.

Uribe released his accusation on suspending peace initiatives with the FARC to free hostages after FARC allegedly set off a car bomb in Bogota.

The Ministers are expected to hand over the evidence at bilateral border committee meetings scheduled at the end of the month.

Minister Santos has confirmed that Colombian Army intelligence reports have located Reyes in Ecuadorian jungles.

The Ecuadorian government has already responded to the accusations, saying it is waiting for the evidence.
