(The Sun) Hundreds of soldiers broke ranks and sprinted for cover as blasts rang out over the capital Caracas. Seven soldiers were hurt.
The explosions cut short a televised speech by the president during the National Guard’s 81 anniversary celebration.
Mr Maduro – blamed for the impoverished country’s crippling inflation and shortages of basic goods – was unharmed.
This is not good.
