Pres. Nicolás Maduro survives drone assassination attempt

TEHRAN, Aug. 05 (MNA) – Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro escaped a series of explosions which abruptly broke out while he was giving a speech in Caracas on Saturday.

Chaos has struck Venezuela following an apparent foiled assassination attempt against the country’s president, Nicolás Maduro.

Several drones with explosives detonated close to Maduro, while he was addressing a military parade in the capital Caracas on Saturday afternoon. 

The drones did not reach Maduro, though it is not clear if they were shot down or exploded prematurely. The president survived unharmed but seven people were injured in the attack.

Jorge Rodríguez said “the investigation clearly reveals [the explosions] came from drone-like devices that carried explosives."
