Venezuelan president Hugo Chávez said that political opponents and Colombian paramilitaries have a plot to overthrow his government. "Mayors and governors come along with this plan, and they find support in paramilitaries. CIA operatives bring here Colombian criminal groups and plant them in the police, on the land, in drug trafficking. They are mafia," Chávez declared during his weekly television program. On the other hand, last Friday, Colombian authorities said Farc guerrilla leaders were hiding on Venezuelan territory.
