PressTVNews Videos on Feb 16, 2014
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro orders the expulsion of three US consular officials as tension rises over the anti-government demonstrations being held across the country.
Maduro announced the decision and accused Washington of lending legitimacy to the opposition’s efforts to destabilize the country. Maduro says he won’t tolerate threats to Venezuela’s sovereignty. Meanwhile, a leader of the Western-backed opposition has called on anti-government protesters to continue holding demonstrations in order to increase the pressure on Maduro. Leopoldo Lopez says he will attend Tuesday’s demonstration, even though he could be arrested. The government has accused Lopez of vandalism and incitement to violence. He is wanted by the judiciary on charges of terrorism and murder after calling a demonstration against the Maduro administration that left three dead and dozens injured.
