Ecuador urged the Organisation of American States (OAS) to condemn Colombia for violating its territory.

Colombian forces killed senior Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) rebel commander, Raul Reyes and 16 others in Ecuador on Saturday.

Foreign Minister, Maria Isabel Salvador said an apology would not suffice and demanded a full investigation.

Colombia\'s Ambassador to the OAS, Camilo Ospina denied that there had been an incursion. He said the Colombian army fired at the FARC camp from helicopters in Colombian airspace.

He reiterated that documents found at the camp linked both Ecuador and Venezuela to the Colombian rebel group.
