Venezuela’s opposition leader Juan Guaido is calling for a major protest against the president on Wednesday.
He says President Nicolas Maduro doesn’t have the support of the armed forces and has appealed for the military to join his movement.
But Maduro later made an appearance on TV, surrounded by army officers.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says Maduro had planned to flee to Cuba but Russia stepped in to dissuade him.
