Venezuela's Chavez severs ties with Colombia over FARC

Venezuela severed diplomatic relations with Colombia and threatened to cut economic ties, after the neighboring nation presented what it said was proof that some 1,500 leftist guerrillas were using dozens of camps here to "get fat" and launch attacks. On Thursday, Colombia's ambassador to the OAS, Alfonso Hoyos, presented a series of photographs and videos that he said showed members of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, inside Venezuelan territory.
