Venezuelan President, Nicolás Maduro, said the perpetrators of what he said were an assassination attempt against him, will face “maximum punishment”.
He was speaking at a military event in Caracas, when the alleged attack, involving explosive drones, occurred.
He has blamed Colombia for the incident, but Colombia said the accusation was “baseless”.
The Government has also pointed accusing finger at the opposition, prompting fears of a new crackdown.
Many opposition leaders have already left the country citing Government harassment and there are reported to be more than 200 political prisoners in the country’s jails.
US National Security Adviser, John Bolton, denied any US involvement in the incident, adding that, it could be “a pretext set up by the regime itself”.
