VENEZUELA -- Venezuela's acting president claims that far right figures in the U.S. plotted to kill an opposition leader there.
Nicolas Maduro made the accusation while opening a book fair in Caracas.
He says the plot is linked to former Bush officials who planned an attempt to kill opposition leader Henrique Capriles.
Roger Noriega, one the officials Maduro accused, denied the accusation, calling it absolute nonsense.
Maduro says the government sent a senior general to meet with Capriles' team.
