Venezuela says crushes anti-government attack on military baseBy Girish Gupta and Alexandra Ulmer VALENCIA/CARACAS, Venezuela (Reuters) - Venezuelan authorities suppressed a small rebellion at a military base near the city of Valencia on Sunday, arresting seven men who they say participated in a "terrorist attack" against the government of unpopular President Nicolas Maduro. Earlier on Sunday a video circulated on social media showing a group of men in military uniform announcing an uprising in the wake of the creation of a pro-government legislative superbody on Friday, which was widely condemned as a power grab. Some of the alleged plotters got away with weapons stolen from the base, and state security forces were "intensely" searching for them, the defense ministry said in a statement.
