Venezuela claims to have captured two Americans involved in failed invasion
(CNN)Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro says two American “mercenaries” have been apprehended after a failed coup attempt launched over the weekend.
President Donald Trump on Tuesday denied US involvement in the incident.
“I just got information on that… But it has nothing to do with our government,” Trump told reporters outside the White House before departing for an event in Arizona.
Maduro, in a live address on state television late Monday, brandished what he claimed were the US passports and driver’s licenses of the two men, along with what he said were their ID cards for Silvercorp, a Florida-based security services company.
