Venezuela seized GM's plant amid protests targeting Nicolas Maduro's government

Venezuela official: Attack at military base



The head of Venezuela’s ruling party Diosdado Cabello said on Sunday that there was a "terrorist" attack at a military base controlled by troop who support the government.

Cabello tweeted that the military groups acted quickly to control the situation.

The alleged terrorist attack came hours after a small group of men armed with assault rifles and military gear, released a video saying that they were in rebellion against President Nicolás Maduro in Carabobo state. In the video, a man identifying himself as Capt. Juan Caguaripano said that any military unit refusing to go along with its call for rebellion would be declared a "military target".

Rep. Marco Rubio(R-FL), a vocal critic of the Venezuelan president, spoke out against the military rebellion, saying "Fact that Narco leader @dcabellor annouced #6Aug military rebellion & govt response shows who's in charge of security forces in #Venezuela."
