CARACAS (Reuters) – Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido will not hold a scheduled parliamentary session in the national congress on Wednesday, after armed civilians attacked a convoy carrying several of his allies to the parliament building.

Instead, Guaido will preside over the session in the Caracas suburb of El Hatillo, the National Assembly’s Twitter account said.
