President Hugo Chavez said Monday that Venezuela's intelligence agencies have "infiltrated" a group of military officials from the US Embassy who were allegedly involved in espionage. "I urge the Embassy of the United States in Venezuela to stop spying, we have you infiltrated ambassador, don't move much because we are watching you," said Chavez. "The military officers of the US Embassy are involved in espionage and we have them infiltrated." Chavez, who has accused US President George W. Bush of backing efforts to overthrow his leftist government, threatened last week to arrest any American officials caught gathering intelligence on his military.
