A DEA agent was found dead in a car wreck with four shots to the head. His passenger, a fellow agent who told police he had been drinking heavily at a party they attended, was charged with murder. "Who did I kill tonight?" Richard Fekete, 55, asked officers who told him they found DEA agent Shaun Curl, 39, dead in a wrecked car Friday night in Miramar, Fla., according to a police affidavit.

After 4 1/2 years as U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration chief here, Andy Fenrich figured that Operation King Cobra was bound to be a classic. Two Philippine businessmen wanted to sell 22 pounds of high-grade heroin. Unknown to them, the buyer was an undercover DEA agent backed by elite Philippine police. As hidden video cameras rolled and tape recorders whirred, the date and price was set for one of the biggest Philippine drug stings--called a "buy-and-bust" here--ever.

Venezuela said it would not allow U.S. agents to carry out counter-drug operations in the country, accusing the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration of being a "new cartel" that aids traffickers. Spokesman Brian Penn said the U.S. Embassy categorically denies the accusation. Washington has accused Venezuela of not cooperating in counter-drug efforts and says cocaine shipments are increasingly passing through the country from neighboring Colombia.
