• Venezuela orders arrest of second opposition figure


    CARACAS: Venezuela issued an arrest warrant for a second opposition figure, his party said, ramping up the pressure on protesters who have staged nationwide rallies in the biggest challenge to President Nicolas Maduro since he came to power.

The party said that Maduro’s embattled government was now seeking Carlos Vecchio, the party’s national political coordinator.
