The US government yesterday revoked the visa of Colombian President Ernesto Samper because of his alleged links to the Cali drug cartel.

State Department spokesman Nicholas Burns said the administration determined that Samper "is ineligible for a visitor's visa under US law." Calling it "a very serious and extraordinary step," Burns said the move demonstrates to the Colombian people that the United States takes narcotics trafficking seriously. AP - Washington
