Venezuela lawmaker charged over drone attack


Imprisoned lawmaker Juan Requesens accused of an attempt to assassinate Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro will face trial.

The 30-year-old opposition politician was arrested three days after two drones packed with explosives flew towards Maduro at a military parade in August.

Requesens, who will remain in custody while the trial is heard, has denied the charges.

If found guilty, he could face 30 years in prison.
