Washington, May 14 : The US authorities have broken into the Venezuelan Embassy in Washington DC where US activists had been living for several weeks, trying to protect the building from being taken over by supporters of Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido, a Sputnik correspondent reported from the site.
Dozens of journalists and several hundred people are currently outside the embassy. Some Venezuelans are singing songs in Spanish.
The authorities are inside the building and expected to arrest the activists. Despite the increased police presence, the situation remains peaceful so far. SPUTNIK
