The government in Venezuela has put down an attempted uprising on a military base.
Officials described the men in military fatigues and armed with assault rifles as ‘terrorists’.
The soldiers declared they were rebelling and that anyone refusing to join them would be declared a military target.
But the base remained under control of government troops.
‘This is not a coup but a military and civil action to re-establish constitutional order,’ the leader of the attackers said in a video posted on social media.
