By Hugh Bronstein CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuela launched a country-wide manhunt on Monday for the men who assaulted an army base the day before, using state TV to flash pictures of the accused rebels who escaped with weapons after a gunfight with soldiers. The attack came just hours after the first session of a new legislative superbody created by President Nicolas Maduro, which opponents say will cement dictatorship after months of deadly protests in the oil-rich but economically-ailing country. Defense Minister Vladimir Padrino said in a televised address that two of the men who attacked the base had been shot dead and eight captured.
