TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - Speaking on state TV on Tuesday, Maduro said that during the attack in the capital Caracas a grenade was thrown at the building but it failed to explode.
He added that Special Forces were currently searching for the "terrorists" responsible for the attack, and that the chopper had also flown over the country’s interior ministry.
"I demand that the MUD (the opposition coalition) condemns this eminently coup-mongering attack," he added.
Unrest in Venezuela was aggravated in early April after the Supreme Court decided to annul the powers of the opposition-controlled parliament. The move was regarded as a violation of the country’s constitution. The decision was later revoked, but protests have only continued.
