On Saturday, a military parade in the Venezuelan capital of Caracas attended by Maduro was interrupted by what authorities said was an assassination attempt on the life of the president. Venezuela’s Information Minister Jorge Rodriguez said several drones detonated close to the presidential box during Maduro's address. The president was unharmed, but seven soldiers sustained injuries.
Shortly after the incident, the president accused opposition forces, and Colombia, adding that some of the assassination attempt's perpetrators resided in the United States. Both Bogota and Washington have denied any involvement.
