Venezuela: 'A frustrated magnicide' — FM Arreaza on drone attack against Maduro

Venezuela’s Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza called the drone attack against President Nicolas Maduro a «frustrated magnicide,» during a meeting with the accredited diplomatic corps in Caracas on Sunday. «What happened yesterday was, in legal terms, a frustrated magnicide,» Arreaza said. He went on to say that the apparent attempted attack was «serious» because it targeted «those who hold high... Еще positions in a country,” adding that it could’ve been «a 'genocide,' as those drones could have killed hundreds.» According to the Foreign Ministry, a probe launched to investigate the attack suggests it might be traceable back to the United States and Colombia. Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro survived the apparent assassination attempt while giving a speech at a military event in the capital on Saturday. Seven National Guard soldiers were injured after explosions interrupted Maduro during a speech to mark the 81st anniversary of the Bolivarian National Guard of Venezuela. Maduro and other government members were unharmed in the attack.
