Ecuador’s military staged a spectacular rescue Thursday night to free President Rafael Correa, who was holed up in a hospital for more than 12 hours by a police uprising that threatened the nation’s stability.

While television cameras rolled, soldiers launched a daring operation to pluck Correa from a police hospital where he had gone after being injured in a police protest. Sporadic gunfire could be heard and Correa said five soldiers were injured.

A defiant Correa appeared minutes later on the balcony of the presidential palace, lamenting those hurt in the rescue.
