FILE - In this Feb. 4, 2014, file photo, a man walks in front of a mural with painted images of Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro, left, independence hero Simon Bolivar and late President Hugo Chavez, in Caracas, Venezuela. Announcements of foiled coups and plots against the government have long been a part of the Chavista discourse. A study by the Caracas-based newspaper Ultimas Noticias counted 63 alleged assassination plots between when Chavez took office in 1999 and his death in 2013. Since then, such claims have come even more frequently. President Nicolas Maduro’s government has denounced more than a dozen purported plots since coming to power 15 months ago.
