Venezuela army hunts rebels behind raid on military base

Venezuela army hunts rebels behind raid on military baseVenezuela’s top military brass appeared on state TV late Monday to show support for President Nicolas Maduro, as the government hunts for leaders of uniformed rebels who raided an army base and made off with weapons. Padrino gave an updated report on Sunday’s attack on the base in the northwestern city of Valencia by 20 men in uniform, an incident that fueled fears the country’s worsening crisis could tip into armed conflict. Padrino said that ex-National Guard captain, Juan Carlos Caguaripano, and a former lieutenant, Jefferson Gabriel Garcia, were behind the raid.
