Arrests over ‘uprising attempt’
Arrests have been made in Venezuela after soldiers tried to launch an uprising against President Maduro, officials say.
The ruling Socialist Party’s deputy leader, Diosdado Cabello, called it a “terrorist attack” on Twitter.
It happened in Valencia in Carabobo state in the northwest of the country.
A video released on social media showed uniformed men saying they were rising against a “murderous tyranny”. Venezuela has seen months of protests.
“This is not a coup but a military and civil action to re-establish constitutional order,” said the leader, who gave his name as Juan Caguaripano.
Mr Cabello said full control had been restored at the Fuerte Paramacay military barracks.
