George Washington Statue Bombed in Caracas
An explosion device detonated in Caracas’ Washington Square caused damage to the base of the statue to United States’ revolutionary hero and first elected president George Washington, the police said. The explosion, which did not cause casualties, came at a particularly tense time in US-Venezuelan relations, and only hours after Venezuelan state oil company Petroleos de Venezuela (PDVSA) suspended the supply of oil to US oil giant Exxon Mobil.
Caracas police director Antonio Pujols said the blast happened in the early hours of Wednesday at the square, in the El Paraiso neighbourhood in the Venezuelan capital.
Pujols added that leaflets were found at the scene in which the unknown Grupo Venceremos de la Izquierda Central Unida (We Will Prevail Group of the United Central Left) claimed responsibility for the attack.
Daniel has more one Venezuela’s frozen assets that has Chavistas going bonkers.
