Venezuela to expel US diplomats
Text size Aa Aa

Venezuela’s president is to expel three US diplomats whom he has accused of plotting to destabilise his government.

President Nicolas Maduro claims the three took part in a power-grid sabotage which caused a nationwide blackout last September. They have 48 hours to leave the country.

Relations between the two nations have been bad for over a decade. The US has denied the allegations.
