Venezuela indicts opposition leader Machado, alleging plot to kill Maduro

CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuela has indicted hardline opposition leader Maria Corina Machado on charges that she took part in an alleged plot to kill President Nicolas Maduro, the state prosecutor's office said on Wednesday. Machado, who was at the forefront of major street protests against Maduro's socialist government earlier this year, has dismissed the accusations as a charade meant to silence her and distract Venezuelans from a growing economic crisis. If found guilty, the former legislator could be sentenced to between 8 and 16 years in jail #Brazil #France #Middle East #Russia #Venezuela #Government #markets #United Kingdom #Latin America #opinion

Church rebukes Venezuela Socialists over 'sinful' Chavez prayer

CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuela's Roman Catholic Church has admonished the ruling Socialist Party for re-writing the Christian "Lord's Prayer" into an ode to its beloved late leader Hugo Chavez. "The Lord's Prayer, the typical prayer for Christians around the world, comes from the very lips of our Lord Jesus Christ... and is therefore untouchable," the local Catholic Church said in a statement #Politics #Business #facebook #Brazil #Technology #Arabic #Venezuela #Argentina #Latin America #opinion #christian
