Venezuela announces defeat of US-funded coup attempt

Venezuela’s president has announced the defeat of a US-bankrolled coup attempt against the country, which was being plotted by five aviation officers.

Speaking in the capital Caracas on Thursday, Nicolas Maduro said, “We have broken up and foiled a coup attempt against democracy and the stability of our country.”

Upon potential realization, the coup, financed by the United States and directed “from Washington,” would have seen an aerial attack on the presidential palace or another target, he said.

“This was an attempt to use a group of military aviation officers to provoke a violent event,” added the Venezuelan chief executive.
