Armed civilians attack opposition convoy outside Venezuelan congress

 A group of armed civilians attacked a convoy of vehicles carrying Venezuelan opposition politicians to congress on Wednesday, backing recent efforts under President Nicolas Maduro to bar opposition leader Juan Guaido from presiding over parliament, APA reports quoting Reuters.

A crowd of men hit the cars with traffic cones and crowbars, breaking one car’s back window, according to a video recorded by an opposition member from inside the vehicle. The convoy then sped away, tailed by several individuals on motorbikes.

Guaido’s spokesman said four opposition politicians were in the vehicles, including Carlos Berrizbeitia, Guaido’s second congressional vice president. No one was injured.
