Politician’s suspicious death: Venezuelan authorities said this week that a jailed opposition lawmaker killed himself while in custody, but his party alleges he was murdered. Fernando Albán, 56, was detained at the Caracas airport last week upon returning from a United Nations meeting in New York and charged with plotting the failed August drone attack on President Nicolás Maduro. Authorities said he asked to use the bathroom at the state intelligence agency headquarters and leaped from the 10th-floor window. “There’s no doubt this was an assassination,” said opposition leader Julio Borges, who lives in exile in Colombia and who led the opposition’s informal delegation to the U.N. Borges said he was told by Albán’s wife that her husband had been under pressure to testify against him in the drone plot. The U.N. said it will investigate the death.
