U.S. accuses Venezuelan officials of aiding Colombian drug traffickers

The United States has accused two senior Venezuelan government officials of aiding drug traffickers in Colombia. They are Hugo Armando Carvajal Barrios and Henry de Jesus Rangel Silva, both high ranking intelligence officials. A former government minister, Ramon Emilio Rodriguez Chacin, was also named. The U.S. Treasury said Friday the three materially assisted the narcotics trafficking activities of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, describing the leftist group as a narco-terrorist organization.
