    max steel wrote:U.S. spy plane invaded Venezuelan airspace, embattled President Maduro says

    Venezuelan military detected a Boeing 707 E-3 Sentry aircraft over guarded airspace twice last week -- just after 6 a.m. local time on May 11 and May 13.

    "Our military aviation detected the illegal entry, for unusual espionage tasks, of the [plane], which is an airborne early warning control center system that has all the mechanisms for espionage," Maduro said.

    The leader further stated that the E3 Sentry, also known as AWACS, is used by Washington "to support communications of armed groups in war zones or to prepare actions to disable electronic equipment (of the) government, the armed forces or the economy."

    Maduro added that the "illegal entries ... are going to be severely protested to the United States government."

    Didn't even notice this post, but all I have to say to Maduro would be - simply respond with sending jets to intercept it. Use their F-16's.

    Protesters in Paraguay Set Fire to Congress After Presidential Reelection Vote

    After hours of increasingly violent protest both ahead of and following a vote on a controversial change to the country's presidential election process, angry demonstrators broke into and set a fire on the ground floor of Paraguay's Congress building in its capital, Asuncion.

    Protesters clashed with police for several hours in the capital city following a secret vote by 25 senators for a bill that would allow President Horacio Cartes to run for reelection. Demonstrators contend that this is unconstitutional.

    Instead of being held on the Senate floor as usual, the vote took place in a closed office in Congress.

    Police have used rubber bullets and water cannons to disperse the crowd, but protesters continue to surround the building and, according to reports, have broken in and are vandalizing the interior. Several journalists and politicians have been injured according to local media reports.

    Senator Desiree Masi from the opposition Progressive Democratic Party said, "A coup has been carried out. We will resist and we invite the people to resist with us."

    Tadeo Rojas, interior minister, said that a small group of protesters injured police as well, telling a press conference, "The national police were not under any instruction to repress. They were attacked."

    The controversial bill will now go to Paraguay's House, where it was expected to be voted on Saturday morning.

    If passed, the change would apply to Cartes, as well as future presidents. Paraguay's presidents are elected to five-year terms.

    Venezuelan army kills 6 Colombian criminals on the border

    Venezuela reports the death of six members of the Colombian criminal gang 'Los Rastrojos' during a clash in Táchira, bordering Colombia.

    The commander of the Venezuelan army, Major General Jesus Suarez Chourio, announced Saturday that the incident occurred during a scouting and patrol operation on plans to protect the border between Venezuela and Colombia.

    "In this patrol we found a group that generated violence, called 'Los Rastrojos'. This confrontation was raised resulting in six people killed and the capture of a citizen, who is contributing valuable information to clarify this fact and reach the connection in Venezuela of these irregulars ", explained the Venezuelan general in statements to the state channel VTV.

    He also said that during the clashes two army soldiers were also injured, identified as captain José Mantilla Romero and Lieutenant Alcides Rafael Subero.

    According to Suárez Chourio, the operation resulted in the seizure of about 500 cartridges of ammunition, seven campaign teams, and quartermaster material including a Colombian army uniform.

    According to local sources, the band 'Los Rastrojos' emerged in Colombian territory after the demobilization of the paramilitary United Self-Defense Forces of Colombia (AUC), and came to be considered one of the main criminal groups, but according to the authorities of that country was dismantled in 2016.

    The incident coincides with the celebration of military exercises ordered by President Nicolás Maduro before "the military threat" and the US sanctions against Venezuela, but General Suárez Chourio did not tie it with the maneuvers realized Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 of August.

    Saturday's clash comes amid tensions between Caracas and Bogota, after Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos's government ignored the Constituent National Assembly (ANC) that fueled Maduro and has ruled Venezuela since Aug. 4.

    Colombia also granted asylum to six Venezuelan magistrates who fled their country after the arrest warrant issued against them by the Bolivarian authorities.

    Who is the Russian citizen kidnapped and killed in cold blood by the Colombian guerrillas?

    The State Duma of Russia plans to investigate in the circumstances of the possible assassination of the Russian citizen Arsén Voskanián in Colombia.
    The deputy of United Russia, head of the group of relations with the parliaments of the countries of South America Tatiana Sapríkina has promised to raise the issue in the State Duma.

    The Russian embassy in Colombia also reported that it was reviewing the information on the murder of Voskanián, kidnapped by the rebels.
    It was previously reported that Arsén Voskanián, who was imprisoned for six months by the National Liberation Army of Colombia (ANO), died in April 2017 while trying to escape the kidnapping.

    Voskanián was 42 years old and left Moscow to travel to Colombia in 2016. He went to the country to improve his health in the equatorial climate.

    In his youth, he was a military parachutist. After leaving this job, he became a businessman. According to his brother, Arsén was not engaged in the capture of poisonous frogs, nor was he a taxi driver.

    It had previously been reported that Arsén Voskanián, a Russian citizen of Armenian origin, had been kidnapped by the National Liberation Army (ELN) in Colombia and shot down after attempting to escape the guerrillas guarding him
