Colombia's Santos and Venezuela's Chavez hold talks

Colombia's new President Juan Manuel Santos and Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez are to meet in Colombia for talks on Tuesday.

The two leaders are to discuss their countries' diplomatic rift, Colombia's foreign ministry said.

After Mr Santos' inauguration on Saturday, Mr Chavez said he would like to meet him "face-to-face".

Earlier, Mr Chavez urged Colombia's largest left-wing rebel group, Farc, to free all its hostages.
