Newsline: Venezuela accuses US embassy of plotting economic sabotage

The accusations follow talks meant to improve relations between the two countries. Maduro said the U.S. military had placed agents at the embassy in Caracas to orchestrate sabotaging of the the country’s struggling economy and foment violence. He said he would present evidence in the coming days of what he labelled “Plan Vulture.” Last week, the US State Department called for Venezuelan elections officials to reverse bans that prevent high-profile government critics from running in Dec. 6 elections.
