CARACAS: Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro said Wednesday (Thursday in Manila) that a large oil refinery suffered a “terrorist attack” as his government struggles to provide domestic fuel to the nation amid a historic political and economic crisis. The president also said two foreigners tied to extremist groups were detained a day prior to the incident with plans to kill Venezuelan leaders. Maduro did not identify them, give their nationality or explain whether they had ties to the refinery attack.
