Chavez 'Upholds' PFLP Terrorist's Honor, Hides Personal Health

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has called on France to “respect” Carlos the Jackal, an Arab-affiliated terrorist currently on trial for attacks in Paris. The trial of Ilich Ramirez Sanchez, 62, began Monday, over four terrorist attacks by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine that left 11 people dead and more than 100 wounded in the 1980s.
