Venezuelan President’s Claims of Helicopter Attack Contested – WSJ

CARACAS, Venezuela—President Nicolás Maduro said a helicopter dropped grenades on the Supreme Court on Tuesday in a terror attack, though opposition figures called his claims a diversion orchestrated to deflect from the government’s attempts to neuter state institutions outside its control.

Mr. Maduro said he had activated “the entire armed forces,” after announcing on state television that four grenades were dropped from a small blue helicopter that officials said was piloted by a rogue policeman.

No one was injured and there were no signs of damage.
