US will use ‘every tool’ to get ex-soldiers back from Venezuela: Pompeo

The US will use “every tool” available to secure the release of two former American soldiers believed to be held in Venezuela, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Wednesday.

Venezuelan officials claimed this week that two former US special forces soldiers — Luke Denman and Airan Berry — were among the mercenaries taken into custody after a botched coup attempt to overthrow Venezuelan socialist strongman Nicolas Maduro.

Pompeo stopped short of confirming the two Americans were being held in the South American nation, calling it a “consular matter.”
