Debacle disperses in Latin America, but more Mexicans involved
Just as quickly as it blew up a week ago, the disagreement between Ecuador and Columbia over an incursion into Ecuador by Columbia to kill a leader of the Farc rebel group has blown over.
President Correa of Ecuador, Uribe of Columbia and Chavez of Venuezuela shook hands during a conference of Latin American leaders in the Dominican Republic on Friday, ending the dispute that had prompted both Venezuela and Ecuador to send troops to their borders.
Meanwhile, reports continue to emerge about the number of Mexicans who were killed in the cross-border attack the Saturday night of last weekend, which left more than 20 dead in total. La Jornada and the international media said that four other Mexicans died in the attack, and Ecuador has launched an investigation into the incident.
