The situation is getting quite hot around Colombia after this country invaded the territory of ecuador in an anti-guerrilla operation. Both Venezuela and Ecuador has broken diplomatic ties and deployed the army at the border. While Colombia spreads rumors about ties between the FARC and its neighbours, and even uranium traffic by the guerrilla, Ecuador explains that the Colombian assault against the FARC's negotiator was a cowardly masscre, being most bodies in underwear and with shots on their backs.
The situation is hot enough for Brazil to have intervened diplomatically, trying to calm down the escalation. In Europe, France and Italy have expressed their ashtonishment and regret for the Colombian operation, obviously aimed to prevent any sort of negotiation or hostage liberation process.
