Grenades, a raid and now a drone: incidents targeting Venezuela's Maduro

Grenades, a raid and now a drone: incidents targeting Venezuela's MaduroA grenade attack, a rebel raid and now an alleged drone bombing: Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro and his government have been targeted several times since he entered office in 2013. On Saturday, Maduro said he had escaped an “assassination” attempt using an explosive-laden drone during a Caracas military parade, which the government said injured seven soldiers. The government pointed the blame at “the ultra-right wing” — its term for the opposition — but Maduro also accused Colombia’s President Juan Manuel Santos and financiers in the United States.
