Castro and Chavez

Cuban President Raul Castro, left, speaks next to his Venezuelan counterpart Hugo Chavez in Managua during the Bolivarian Alternative for the Americas (ALBA) summit and the Rio Group meeting. A leftwing Latin American trade group said it was recalling its ambassadors to Honduras after the elected President Manuel Zelaya was ousted by troops and flown to Costa Rica. Conservative Mexican leader Felipe Calderon told reporters that both Mexico and the Rio Group "strongly reject the coup d'etat" in Honduras. Getty photo by Mayerling Garcia
