    Soldiers in Ecuador have rescued President Rafael Correa from a police hospital where he was being held by force. The troops opened fire on dissident law enforcement officers. A state of emergency has been declared in the country following police protests against new government austerity measures, which would cut their benefits. Eva Golinger, an expert on Latin America, says the uprising may not have been spontaneous. She claims the revolt is strongly backed by business and political elements both inside and outside Ecuador.
