Helicopter threw grenades at Venezuela's Supreme Court
« on: June 28, 2017, 07:32:21 AM »


Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro says a chopper has dropped grenades on the Supreme Court in Caracas, describing it as a "terror attack." Earlier, he threatened war if his opponents were to topple his government.

A Venezuelan police helicopter attacked the country's Supreme Court building and a government ministry in Caracas on Tuesday in what embattled President Nicolas Maduro described as a "terror attack" by people seeking a coup.
The aircraft dropped four grenades on the court where judges were meeting and fired 15 shots at the Interior Ministry, where people were celebrating a social event for journalists, officials said. No one was injured.
The gun and grenade attack came hours after Maduro warned that he was prepared to enter a full-scale conflict to resolve the country's months-long political crisis.

Speaking on state TV, the 54-year-old president appeared to claim that the attack from the stolen helicopter was part of a conspiracy to destabilize his socialist government and said he had activated the country's air defense in response.
"Sooner rather than later, we are going to capture the helicopter and those behind this armed terrorist attack against the institutions of the country," Maduro said.
The Venezuelan news site CarotaDigital tweeted a video that purported to show a helicopter flying over the city, followed by the sound of several shots.
