Venezuelan acting President Nicolas Maduro said on Wednesday that "far right" figures in the United States were plotting to kill opposition leader Henrique Capriles.

"We have detected plans by the far-right, linked to the groups of (former Bush administration officials) Roger Noriega and Otto Reich, to make an attempt against the opposition presidential candidate," Maduro said in a televised speech.

Maduro gave no more details, but said the government had sent a senior general to meet with Capriles' team.
