A week after Venezuela's president Hugo Chavez announced his country's endeavour to acquire nuclear technology from Iran, Venezuelans hit the streets by the tens of thousands to demand the extradition of Luis Posada Carriles, a top CIA terrorist.

Tens of thousands of Venezuelans have rallied in the capital Caracas to demand the US extradites a Cuban exile accused of bombing an airliner in 1976.

The march comes a day after the US rejected Venezuela's request for it to arrest Cuban-born Luis Posada Carriles, saying there was not enough evidence.

Mr Posada Carriles is in US custody on suspected immigration violations.

The ex-CIA employee denies involvement in the bombing that killed 73 people on the flight from Caracas to Havana.

The naturalised Venezuelan citizen is wanted by both Cuba and Venezuela in connection with the attack.
