Venezuela army hunts rebels behind raid on military baseVenezuela’s military was on Monday hunting an ex-officer and a lieutenant who led uniformed rebels on a weekend raid to grab weapons from an army base, fueling fears the country’s worsening crisis could tip into armed conflict. The defense minister and head of the armed forces, General Vladimir Padrino, said the ex-National Guard captain, Juan Carlos Caguaripano, and the lieutenant, Jefferson Gabriel Garcia, were behind Sunday’s attack on the base in the northwestern city of Valencia by 20 men in uniform.
