Venezuela’s Guaid贸 appeals to military ‘at air force base’ – BBC News

Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaid贸 has published a video which he says was recorded at an air force base.

The recording shows him surrounded by men in uniform calling for the military to back him in “ending the usurpation” of power by President Nicol谩s Maduro.

The military has so far supported Mr Maduro and refused to back Mr Guaid贸.

In the video, Mr Guaid贸 says he has the support of “brave soldiers” in Caracas. The government says it has put down a small coup attempt.

The video, published on Mr Guaid贸’s Twitter account, shows him standing next to another opposition leader, Leopoldo L贸pez, who has been under house arrest after he was found guilty of inciting violence during anti-government protests in 2014.
