'No pardon' for Ecuador rebels, says President Correa

Ecuador's President Rafael Correa has said there will be "no pardon or forgiveness" for those involved in a police rebellion against him.

Mr Correa had to be rescued by the army from a hospital in the capital, Quito, after he was trapped there for several hours by disaffected police.

The president was being treated after inhaling tear gas fired by police who were protesting at austerity measures.
