Ecuador's president has emerged defiant on Friday hours after being rescued by the military, which stormed a hospital in Quito, the capital, where he was taken hostage by rebellious members of the country's police force.
The policemen were protesting for better wages and working conditions before they abducted Rafael Correa while he was being treated for exposure to tear gas.
Correa issued a warning against the hostage takers for what he called a threat to the country's democracy.
