Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said he has plans in place to receive hostages released by Colombian rebels, predicting it will be a "delicate operation." Chavez suggested Friday that security was of the utmost importance in receiving the three hostages the leftist Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, has pledged to free. "As soon as I arrive back in Caracas, I have some plans worked out to receive them," Chavez said told reporters. "It will be a delicate operation." He said some groups in Colombia - both close to and within Colombia's US-allied government - "are going to try to keep the liberation from being successful, but we will achieve it."
