Hugo Chávez 'terrorist link' sparks diplomatic row between Spain and Venezuela

A Spanish judge yesterday accused the government of president Hugo Chavez in Venezuela of involvement with the Basque terrorist group ETA, sparking a diplomatic row between the two countries. The allegations, made in a court document by investigating magistrate Eloy Velasco, said that the Chávez government had acted as an intermediary between Eta and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) guerrilla group. "There is evidence in this case which shows the Venezuelan government's co-operation in the illegal association between FARC and ETA," the magistrate said as he issued international arrest warrants for six alleged Eta members and seven Colombians believed to be members of FARC.
