"The US is expelling Ecuador’s ambassador in retaliation for the Andean nation’s decision to eject US diplomat Heather Hodges over a leaked cable about police corruption. The tit-for-tat move was accompanied by the cancellation of June talks that could impact trade between the two nations. ... The diplomatic cable at the heart of the spat, made public by WikiLeaks, alleges that Rafael Correa, Ecuador’s president, knowingly hired a corrupt police chief." (04/07/11)
