Six Arrested for Assassination Attempt in Venezuela
Six people have been arrested in connection with what the Venezuela government said was an assassination attempt on President Nicolas Maduro.
“The majority of those responsible have been detained. Not only are they confessing, the government has also been able to examine the material that was in their possession, as well as some of the electronic devices they had, including cell phones and computers,” Communications Minister Jorge Rodriguez said.
One of the six had been wanted for involvement in a raid on a northern military base a year ago, in which rebels made off with a cache of weapons.
Last Saturday, two drones, each armed with a kilogramme of C4 explosives, flew toward Maduro as he spoke at a commemoration of the Venezuelan national guard.
