IMF Undecided on Guaido's Recognition, Says Situation in Venezuela Very Fluid

IMF Undecided on Guaido's Recognition, Says Situation in Venezuela Very Fluid

Venezuelan security forces detained a US freelance reporter and his Venezuelan assistant Wednesday for questioning before both men were released, according to the nation's union for journalists and local media.

Pence told the Latino Coalition that the USA will revoke 77 visas held by officials in the Maduro government or their relatives, saying "the time has come to liberate Venezuela from Cuba". Weddle and his assistant, Carlos Camacho, were taken into custody.

According to the National Union of Press Workers, Weddle, Ramos, and their team members joined almost three dozen other reporters and journalists Maduro has arrested, detained, manhandled, and deported just in the last two months.

"[I heard from him at] maybe about 6 or 7 yesterday evening and yesterday morning about 10", Sherry Weddle told CNN.

The United States ratcheted up the pressure on Wednesday, with National Security Advisor John Bolton warning foreign banks that they could face sanctions if they participate in transactions benefiting Maduro.

WPLG, one of the outlets for which Weddle worked, added that he was at the main Caracas-area airport waiting for a USA -bound flight.

Juan Guaido, the self-proclaimed interim leader of the country, said the journalist had been "kidnapped" and demanded his release.

Cody Weddle was taken to the airport outside Caracas for a flight back to the United States, said ABC affiliate Local 10 News, a station he sent dispatches as a freelance correspondent.

Two girls missing from Benbow in Humboldt County
Ten agencies were involved in the search, including State Parks, United States Coast Guard, CAL FIRE and the National Guard. At 6:00 p.m. on Friday, March 1, HCSO reports they received a call from the mother asking for assistance to find the girls.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has not made a decision on recognizing a new government in Venezuela, the organisation's spokesperson said on Thursday.

His latest report for WPLG was on self-declared interim president Juan Guaidó's return to Venezuela.

Florida senator Marco Rubio, long one of Maduro's fiercest critics on the global stage, joined the chorus expressing outrage over Weddle's detention on Wednesday morning.

"We will continue to hold the Maduro regime accountable until freedom is restored in Venezuela", he added.

The U.S. State Department says it is aware of a missing journalist and warns President Nicolas Maduro's government that the world is watching. "I asked him how he was doing".

"We are working through various channels to get as much information as we can and to see that Cody is released." said WPLG President & CEO E. R. Bert Medina.

Many parts of Venezuela remained engulfed by darkness early Friday amid one of the largest power outages in years.
