Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

CARA­CAS: Venezue­lan in­tel­li­gence agents have re­turned op­po­si­tion leader An­to­nio Ledezma to his home, where he is un­der house ar­rest, after tak­ing him to prison on Tues­day, his wife said on Twit­ter.

Ledezma and fel­low op­po­si­tion leader Leopoldo Lopez were jailed after be­ing ac­cused of desta­bil­isz­ing the gov­ern­ment of President Ni­co­las Maduro.

The two lead­ers had called in the run-up to Tues­day’s raid for protests against the cre­ation of a con­stituent assem­bly, which many have de­scribed as an as­sault on ba­sic free­doms in Venezuela.
