Austin American-Statesman - - WORLD & NATION -

CARA­CAS — Venezuela’s Pres­i­dent Hugo Chavez sev­ered ties with Colom­bia af­ter fac­ing ac­cu­sa­tions he’s har­bor­ing as many as 87 guer­rilla camps that are used by up to 1,500 Colom­bian rebels to smug­gle co­caine and launch ter­ror­ist attacks into Colom­bia. Chavez re­jected the ac­cu­sa­tions, say­ing they were mo­ti­vated by Colom­bian Pres­i­dent Al­varo Uribe’s de­sire to pro­voke a war.
