` Maduro said that three ` Air Force Generals ‘ had been Arrested for Plotting an Uprising against his Government ‘

#AceWorldNews – VENEZUELA- March 25 – President Nicholas Maduro said Tuesday that three air force generals had been arrested for plotting an uprising against his left-wing government.

He told a meeting of South American foreign ministers that the three generals had been in contact with the opposition and “were trying to rise up against the legitimately constituted government.”

He added that the plot had been discovered because other officers had come forward.

The latest disclosure comes amid a broadening government crackdown against Maduro’s opponents after weeks of street protests have left 34 people dead.
