Spanish King Tells Chavez To 'Shut Up'
A summit aimed at developing closer ties between Latin America, Spain and Portugal has ended in bitter disagreement, with the King of Spain telling Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez to 'shut up'. Mr Chavez has a reputation for speaking his mind and during his closing speech at the Ibero American summit in Chile he launched into an angry attack on the former prime minister of Spain, Jose Maria Aznar.

The summit is supposed to bring the Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking countries of Europe and Latin America closer together. This latest one in Chile only seems to have driven some of them further apart.
