Subject: Hezbollah Implicated In Colombian Drug Trade
Softwar    10/22/2008 10:48:02 AM
http://www.janes.com/news/security/countryrisk/iwr/iwr081022_1_n.shtml On 21 October, the Colombian Fiscalía General (Public Prosecutor's Office) released a press communiqué detailing the dismantling of an international cocaine trafficking and money laundering network that was supposedly diverting funds to Lebanese Hizbullah. The claims of financing links between drugs-related criminals and Hizbullah are plausible, although this does not pre-suppose Hizbullah terrorist-oriented activity within Latin America itself. Nevertheless, Hizbullah has previously been implicated in terrorist actions on the continent - most notably bombings against the Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires (1992) and an Argentine-Israeli mutual association (1994).
