    Colombian Court: US Military Base Deal Unconstitutional

    Colombia’s Constitutional Court has suspended a deal giving the US military access to at least seven Colombian bases. On Tuesday, the court ruled the deal is unconstitutional and ordered the Colombian government to submit it to lawmakers for approval. In addition to opening the bases to the US military, Colombia also agreed to allowing up to 800 US troops and 600 military contractors and granting them diplomatic immunity. The deal has come under wide criticism in Latin American from countries including Brazil, Bolivia, Ecuador and Venezuela, as well as several human rights groups.
