BREAKING: Maduro bans HCR's rally (Updated)

In cadena nacional, Nicolas Maduro just announced that he won’t allow the rally called for Henrique Capriles to the CNE, supposed to take place tomorrow in Caracas.

Earlier today, Prosecutor General Luisa Ortega Diaz said 7 people died and 61 were wounded by protests. She blamed Capriles for the events. Those numbers have not been independently corroborated. Capriles rejected the accusations through his Twitter account.

There are protests in front of CNE’s offices around the country (except in the capital Caracas). No reports of incidents so far, but military presence is highly visible.

UPDATE: Henrique Capriles will have a new press conference soon. More to follow…
