OPPOSITION LEADER VOWS CRIPPLING STRIKES OVER VENEZUELA CRISIS

Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó has called for an escalating series of strikes to force President Nicolás Maduro to relinquish power.

Mr Guaidó urged public employees to act today , saying the stoppages would lead to a general strike.

Mr Maduro meanwhile dismissed suggestions he had been ready to flee and accused the US of directing a coup.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the US could take military action to resolve the crisis and accused Russia and Cuba of destabilising the country through their support for Mr Maduro.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told Mr Pompeo that America’s influence over Venezuela was destructive and a violation of international law.
