Syria says four American helicopters have carried out a raid on a village eight kilometers inside its territory along the border with Iraq. Syria has protested to American and Iraqi diplomats in the capital Damascus. There has been no official comment yet from the U. S. authorities. Correspondents say the raid took place near a significant crossing point for insurgents who go into Iraq. The press attaché of the Syrian Embassy in London Jihad Makdissi, said the attack was an active aggression.


"Four military U. S. helicopters penetrated the Syrian airspace unprovoked and they have headed toward a village called Al-Sukkiraya, eight kilometers inside the Syrian territory and they have bombarded or stormed a building under construction and they killed only civilian, eight civilian and several injuries and a sixteen-year old boy was killed and the wife of the guard of the building was killed. "


The Mexican authorities said they've arrested a leader of one of the most powerful drug cartels in the world, the country's Arellano-Felix Cartel. The Defense Department said the man Eduardo Arellano-Felix was arrested after a shootout in the city of Tijuana on the United States’ border. Warren Bull reports.


The Mexican Defense Ministry said soldiers and armed police officers entered the Chapultepec area of Tijuana and despite coming under fire, detained Eduardo Arellano-Felix. He is accused of trafficking tons of cocaine and marijuana to the United States and the U. S. State Department had been offering five million dollars for his capture. The Arellano-Felix family dominated the drug trade into California in the 1990s but the deaths or arrests of many of its leaders have weakened the organization.


Ukraine and Hungary have become the latest countries to receive help from the International Monetary Fund to cope with the global financial crisis. The IMF has agreed in principle to lend Ukraine more than 16 billion dollars, much more than expected and the Fund says it has reached a broad agreement with Hungary on a substantial financing package. Details will be announced soon.


A former Colombian congressman who was held by left-wing guerillas for more than eight years has escaped along with a rebel leader who guarded him. The Congressman Oscar Tulio Lizcano said they escaped from a FARC guerrilla camp in the jungle in western Colombia. He is the first FARC hostage to gain freedom since the military freed the former Colombian presidential candidate Ingrid Betancourt in July. Mr. Lizcano publicly thanked the FARC rebel who helped him escape.


"I have to thank the person, the commander who had the courage and the guts to escape, taking me, a very sick old man. But of course I also have to thank the national policy under the guidance of the president. "

Mr. Netanyahu has made it clear that he does not believe in the need for a separate Palestinian state.
