Venezuela police pilot Oscar Perez explains his aims

A police pilot accused by Venezuela's President of conducting a helicopter attack on the country's Supreme Court on Tuesday demanded Nicolas Maduro's "immediate resignation" and general elections.

In a video released on his Instagram page, police pilot Oscar Perez said he is part of a coalition of members of the security forces whose mission is "to serve our people."

Earlier in the day, Mr. Maduro said a stolen police helicopter fired on Venezuela's Supreme Court in what he called a thwarted "terrorist attack" aimed at ousting him from power.
