Chavez, Correa call for condemnation of Colombia's raid

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez on Wednesday called a Colombian raid that killed two dozen rebels in Ecuador a "war crime," and joined Ecuador's president in demanding international condemnation of the cross-border attack. "We demand condemnation of the Colombian government for this aberrant act," Chavez said, standing beside Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa. Correa said he welcomed a resolution approved by the Organization of American States that concluded the attack violated Ecuador's sovereignty, but added he is looking for an explicit condemnation of the Colombian strike. "We are using all the peaceful and diplomatic channels available for the international community to condemn the aggressor," Correa said.
