Chavez Says U.S. Drone Planes Entered Venezuela
By Daniel Cancel | Bloomberg

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said that U.S. pilotless planes have crossed the border recently from Colombia, and he’s ordered his military to shoot down the drones if they appear in Venezuelan airspace again.

A drone was spotted by troops near the Fuerte Mara military base, in the northwestern Zulia state, Chavez said. He said that Colombia and the U.S. are preparing for “aggressions” against Venezuela, after an agreement signed in October allows U.S. troops access to seven Colombian military bases for counternarcotics operations.

“The other night, a drone plane entered Venezuelan airspace,” Chavez said in comments on state television. “They can’t enter one meter, but they’re doing it. They control the planes remotely, planes that can even drop bombs. I’m alerting the international community that aggressions against Venezuela are increasing.” Read more.
