Ecuador's president protests Colombian incursion

QUITO, Ecuador (AP): President Rafael Correa announced Saturday that Ecuador will send a diplomatic note to protest Colombia's military incursion into Ecuador.

Correa questioned whether Colombian President Alvaro Uribe had been honest with him when he first informed him of the raid.

``The (Colombian) president either was poorly informed or brazenly lied to the president of Ecuador,'' Correa said. ``We are going until the ultimate consequences for a clarification of these scandalous actions that are an aggression on our territory.''
