VIDEO: 'Assassination bid’ on Venezuelan leader with drones carrying explosives

Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro dodged an apparent assassination attempt when drones armed with explosives detonated while he was delivering a speech, officials said.

Mr Maduro and his wife, Cilia Flores, looked up at the sky and winced on Saturday after hearing the sound of an explosion pierce the air.

He was giving a speech to hundreds of soldiers in Caracas which was being broadcast live on television when the incident occurred.
