Renegade helicopter pilot Oscar Pérez was killed in a nine-hour long siege near the capital, Caracas, on Monday, the Venezuelan government has confirmed.
The pilot was labelled a “terrorist” by the government after he threw grenades at government buildings from a helicopter he stole on 27 June.
He had been on the run since then.
Police tracked him down to a house where he was hiding along with members of the anti-government cell he founded.
