Two Americans Detained in Venezuela for Failed ‘Invasion’

Venezuela detained two Americans on Monday for plotting to topple President Nicolas Maduro’s government, according to the Venezuelan president.

The arrests came a day after the government said it foiled an “invasion” from the sea, killing eight assailants and capturing two others.

Maduro appeared on state television and showed the passports of Luke Denman, 34, and Airan Berry, 41, and said that the pair were members of the U.S. security forces. He accused U.S.-backed opposition leader Juan Guaido for bankrolling the plot.
