QUESTIONS were asked yesterday about an apparent drone attack on Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro, which he claimed was an assassination attempt.
Video footage of the incident, shown on Venezuelan television, captured the moment the explosions went off before Maduro and his wife could be seen looking to the sky in confusion. The group has said that its goal is to unite Venezuela's resistance groups, and they released a statement late Saturday in which they decried the state of the country under Maduro.
The United States on Sunday denied any involvement in the alleged "assassination" attempt.
Maduro on Saturday seemed to blame Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos, while also suggesting those behind the attacks live in the United States.
"The investigation will get to the bottom of this", he said, "no matter who falls".
"As usual, the Venezuelan president accuses Colombia for everything that happens".
The president, who has ruled the country since 2013, called it an assassination attempt in a speech on state TV following the attack.
White House slams Justice over 3D-printed guns
While basic 3D printers can be bought for under $500, these are unlikely to be able to print a usable firearm as of now. The restraining order from US District Judge Robert Lasnik in Seattle puts that plan on hold for now.
He says the economic malaise gripping Venezuela is an "economic war" and any unrest is plotted by foreign powers.
"The name of Juan Manuel Santos is behind this attack", the authoritarian Venezuelan leader said. He said the drone fell to the ground and exploded, igniting a fire in an apartment. He thought it might be a pyrotechnics display in honour of the event. Bodyguards then rush to shield Maduro, and another video angle shows soldiers fleeing the scene in a panic. Mairum Gonzalez says she heard a thundering explosion and in terror ran to her fifth-floor balcony.
"It was so strong the building shook", she said. Moments later, she heard a second blast and saw black smoke.
This can only benefit "the enemies of the people and of the government of that country." said foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi.
Bolton on August 5 shot down the accusations, denying any American involvement.
He asked Trump to arrest the terrorists.
While denying any USA role, he said that if Venezuela had "hard information" of a potential violation of U.S. law, "we will take a serious look at it".

Venezuela's attorney general, Tarek William Saab, said he had ordered an investigation into the incident, assigning three prosecutors to the investigation.
Bolton noted that Maduro has a history of baselessly blaming Santos and the USA for incidents in Venezuela.
