(RTTNews) - The Colombian government has accused Venezuela of harboring Leftist guerrilla groups which Bogota has outlawed. Outgoing President Alvaro Uribe's office said in a statement on Thursday that its intelligence agencies had gathered irrefutable evidence that the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) and the smaller National Liberation Army (ELN) had set up camps in the neighboring country. Colombian Defense Minister Gabriel Silva said he had information about FARC leader Ivan Marquez holding a meeting of rebel leaders in Venezuela. Two dozen Leftist guerrillas were killed in joint raids by Colombian Police, Army, and Air Force earlier this month.
