BBC NEWS | Chavez warns US over Iran policy:

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has warned the US that any attack on Iran will have devastating consequences and send oil prices soaring.

Mr Chavez, on a two-day trip to the UK, called for a socialist new world order and said nations were cowards for not standing up to the “American empire”.

The US has not ruled out military action against Iran over its nuclear programme but is pursuing diplomacy.

Hundreds of supporters gave Mr Chavez a rapturous welcome in north London.
