Venezuela gives German ambassador 48 hours to leave the country

Authorities in Venezuela have reportedly arrested a USA freelance journalist after an early morning raid on his Caracas home by the country's feared military counter-intelligence agency. He reports for the Miami Herald, WPLG-Ch.

Camacho was released at around 6:30 p.m., a few hours before Weddle was released.

Tensions have been escalating by the day in Venezuela, where US -backed opposition leader Juan Guaidó is seeking to oust Maduro.

Florida Governor Rick Scott said via Twitter that it was "completely unacceptable for @NicolasMaduro and his thugs to detain @WPLGLocal10's Cody Weddle for reporting on the successful return of the legitimate Venezuelan President @jguaido". "We demand the journalist's immediate release, unharmed".

The United States ratcheted up the pressure on Wednesday, with National Security Advisor John Bolton warning foreign banks that they could face sanctions if they participate in transactions benefiting Maduro.

The U.S. visas of other Venezuelan officials and their relatives have been revoked.

House to vote on resolution condemning Omar's anti-Semitic remarks
On Facebook and Twitter, political analyst Omar Baddar said: "The Israel lobby is NOT the American Jewish community". Omar continues to perpetuate hurtful antisemitic stereotypes that misrepresent our Jewish community".

Weddle lived in Venezuela since June 2014, covering the economic turmoil, political struggle and humanitarian crisis in the area.

At about 7 a.m. Wednesday, a group of armed men, a lot of them dressed in black, approached Weddle's Caracas apartment building, said Florangel Manzo, 49, the president of the condominium board.

McMahan said her mother, who is a schoolteacher, was able to get in touch with the proper authorities to call for his release.

British police said a suspicious package destroyed by bomb-disposal experts at the University of Glasgow on Wednesday contained an explosive device and was linked to three letter bombs sent to two London airports and a railway station.

It was the latest flashpoint in a global showdown over Venezuela, with Western nations largely recognising Guaido as legitimate head of state, but Russian Federation and China still supporting the socialist Maduro and urging non-interference. "US citizen & journalist Cody Weddle is missing in Venezuela and apparently arrested by the Maduro regime this morning", he tweeted. Univision anchor Jorge Ramos was detained by government forces last month before eventually being released hours later. "Cody has been dedicated and committed to telling the story in Venezuela to our viewers", Medina said.

The superintendent for Bristol Virginia Public Schools, Keith Perrigan, told The Courier that Weddle was a talented journalist back when he studied at Patrick Henry High School.
