A US citizen who tried to illegally enter Venezuela via Colombia has been captured, President Hugo Chavez said.
“Four or five days ago, our security forces captured a North American citizen of Latino descent who had illegally crossed the border,” Chavez said.
The president did not identify the suspect, but described him as a mercenary.
A notebook seized from the man allegedly contained “written coordinates.”
Chavez added that the man’s passport had stamps from Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya in recent years.
