The danger of drones: attack on the president in Venezuela

President Nicolás Maduro survived an attack last weekend with drones . During a speech, explosives went off that was attached to the drones.

Attack Venezuela

The president remained unharmed, but a number of soldiers were wounded. Other parties first called a gas explosion in an apartment as a cause, but it was soon confirmed that it was drones with explosives.

It is not yet clear who is behind the attack. Maduro spoke of a right-wing conspiracy of neighboring Colombia. The Colombian Ministry of Foreign Affairs finds this accusation absurd. Meanwhile, six suspects have been arrested.

Drones dangerous

This indicates how dangerous these new devices may be. It is not difficult to get a drone and they have also become much cheaper.  The drone can in any case be a dangerous device if it falls into the hands of criminals or terrorists.
