Chavez acts over US-Bolivia row
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is expelling the US envoy to Caracas, amid an escalating regional diplomatic row.
Mr Chavez said US ambassador Patrick Duddy had 72 hours to leave, adding the move was in solidarity with Bolivia.
It came just hours after Washington ordered out the Bolivian ambassador, in response to its own envoy being told to leave Bolivia.
Bolivia accuses the US envoy of inciting growing violent protests against President Evo Morales.
At least eight people were killed and some 20 injured in clashes between pro- and anti-government groups in Bolivia on Thursday.
Bolivia has seen large numbers of protests in recent weeks by opponents of Mr Morales's economic and social policies.
'Go to hell'
President Chavez used coarse language to describe his feelings about Washington as he ordered the expulsion of US envoy Patrick Duddy.
"The Yankee ambassador to Caracas has 72 hours to leave Venezuela, in solidarity with Bolivia, with the Bolivian people, and with the Bolivian government," Mr Chavez said.
"Go to hell 100 times," he said.
Mr Chavez also announced that he was recalling his envoy from Washington.
Earlier, the US state department declared that the Bolivian ambassador in Washington, Gustavo Guzman, was "persona non grata".
State department spokesman Sean McCormack said the decision was taken "in response to unwarranted actions, and in accordance with the Vienna Convention [on diplomatic protocol]".
He referred to Wednesday's move by Bolivia to expel US Ambassador Philip Goldberg.
President Morales accused Mr Goldberg of "conspiring against democracy" and encouraging the break-up of Bolivia, but Mr McCormack said the expulsion was a "grave error", describing the accusations as "baseless".
