Authorities detained six people suspected of using explosives-laden drones in a failed bid to assassinate Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, officials said Aug. 5.

The government alleged that opposition factions conspired with assailants in Miami and Bogota, although they offered no specific evidence. Opposition leaders decried Maduro for broadly singling out his political opponents, and they warned he may use it to further suppress his critics.

The assailants flew two drones packed with plastic explosives toward Maduro, his wife and other top leaders as he spoke Aug. 4 at an event in Caracas celebrating the 81st anniversary of the National Guard, said Interior Minister Nestor Reverol.

But the military managed to knock one of the drones off course electronically and the other crashed into an apartment building two blocks away from where Maduro was speaking to troops, Reverol said.

A witness in the apartment building said it shook when the drone hit it, adding, “It terrified me.” (AP)
