Venezuela says it has put down uprising at army base

That intensified this week with the election and installation of a constitutional assembly that will rule with almost unlimited powers.

In the Venezuelan social media wrote about the shooting on a military base.

The activist's wife Lilian Tintori said in a message on Twitter that she and her husband remained committed to achieving "peace and freedom for Venezuela".

He later reportedly sought exile after a military tribunal ordered his arrest, appearing in an interview on CNN en Espanol to draw attention to dissatisfaction within the ranks over Venezuela's demise.

Earlier on Sunday a video circulated on social media showing a group of men in military uniform announcing an uprising in the wake of the creation of a pro-government legislative superbody on Friday, which was widely condemned as a power grab.

"This is not a coup d'état", he said.

Military chiefs said the rebels, whom they described as "terrorists", were trying to steal weapons and that seven people were detained after the attack.

More than ten countries of the region, among them Argentina, Colombia, and Peru, said that would not recognize the electoral results.

Post-Scaramucci White House, why Trump is fighting Republicans
Because he suspects Priebus for leaking information about his financial disclosure form to a reporter of Politico. The comments by Anthony Scaramucci causes chaos in the white house and also for religious leaders.

The socialist president of venezuela, Nicolas Maduro was a major blow to his opponents: just installed, the Constituent that he has endowed it with unlimited powers, has sacked an opponent of the toughest, the attorney general Luisa Ortega, the risk to aggravate further the tensions with the worldwide community.

Its installation is virtually certain to intensify a political crisis that has brought four months of protests in which at least 120 people have died and hundreds more have been jailed.

According to the government, more than eight million Venezuelans participated in Sunday's National Constituent Assembly (ANC) vote, or 41% of the Venezuelans able to vote.

Venezuelans view the armed forces as the key power broker in their country, and opposition leaders have repeatedly exhorted the military to break with Maduro over what they call his erosion of democracy and brutality toward demonstrators.

One analyst, Luis Salamanca, said the new assembly "is being born badly, but Maduro doesn't care".

The person says bursts of gunfire could be heard coming from the base in the central city of Valencia starting around 4:30 a.m. Sunday.

Socialist Party officials arrived at congress carrying portraits of independence hero Simon Bolivar and Chavez, whose image was removed from the legislature's main hall by the opposition legislators when they took over in January 2016.

Amid a collapsing economy and food shortages, anti-Maduro protests have been a near constant in Venezuela since April.
