UN Court alert on coca spraying

A political dispute over the spraying of herbicides to control coca plants along the Colombia and Ecuador border could go to the UN's International Court of Justice. Colombia announced in December that it would recommence glyphosate spraying against illegal plantations of the crop, used to make cocaine. Ecuador's President Rafael Correa has since threatened to take its neighbour to the UN's Court. Colombian authorities claim that the early stages of spraying have been completed and that further applications will be made along the borders with Brazil and Peru. Colombia's Defence Minister claims that the country has the support of the Peruvian government, the local Associated Press reports.
