CARACAS - A group of mostly Latin American countries in a leftist bloc loyal to Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez backed his plan on Friday to create an international peace mission to mediate the Libyan crisis.

The Alba group was founded by Chavez and includes staunch allies Cuba and Bolivia, so there was little surprise in its support for the still vague proposal, which he says is aimed at averting an invasion of Libya by Western countries thirsty for its oil. Critics have called his proposal grandstanding.
