The head of the constituent assembly of the country, Diosdado Cabello, said that eight attackers were destroyed. President Nicolas Maduro stated that the purpose of the invasion was to kill him, and among the detained participants in the attack were two US citizens, whom he called the personal guard of the American president. The authorities of the United States and Colombia said they were not related to these events.
