Maduro cuts ties with US, gives diplomats 72 hours to leave
2019-01-24 12:45:29

Venezuelan leader Nicolás Maduro has broken off relations with the US after it recognised opposition leader Juan Guaidó as interim president, the BBC reports. 

Mr Maduro gave US diplomats 72 hours to leave the country.

On Wednesday Mr Guaidó declared himself president during mass protests. The US said "former President Maduro" no longer had authority and urged the army to back Mr Guaidó instead.

So far the army has remained loyal to Mr Maduro.
