Juan Guaidó flies back to Venezuela despite arrest risk.
Venezuela’s self-declared interim leader Juan Guaidó has arrived back in the capital, Caracas, to a rapturous welcome from thousands of supporters.
He faces arrest after defying a Supreme Court-imposed travel ban to leave the country and lobby for international help.
Guaidó – who heads the opposition-led National Assembly and proclaimed himself Venezuela’s acting president after the legislature declared Maduro’s May 2018 re-election illegitimate – has been recognised by more than 50 countries. Mr Maduro, who is backed by China, Russia and Cuba, insists he is the only legitimate president.
