CARACAS, Venezuela — Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez says a U.S. military plane entered Venezuelan airspace and was met by his military's F-16s, which escorted it out.
Chavez is calling it a provocation by the U.S. government, saying the U.S. P-3 plane had taken off from the Dutch Caribbean island of Curacao and twice entered Venezuelan airspace on Friday.
Chavez also warned, without giving details, that his government could reconsider its involvement in Curacao's Venezuela-operated Isla refinery, which processes Venezuelan crude.
