The prosecutor, Luisa Ortega, had become Maduro's main challenger from within the ruling socialist movement since the start of sustained opposition street protests.

"This is a civic and military action to re-establish constitutional order", Caguaripano said in the video.

Diosdado Cabello, deputy leader of the socialist party, tweeted that it was a "terrorist attack".

Padrino is a sort of "superminister", to whom other cabinet members must report, Maduro said a year ago.

Witnesses posted videos of what sounded like possible gunshots ringing in the dark at the Paramacay military base.

Earlier on Sunday, an online video showed a group of men in military uniforms saying they were launching an uprising against unpopular leftist President Nicolas Maduro.

"This is not a coup d'etat", says the man, but an effort "to save the country from total destruction".

The socialist president of venezuela, Nicolas Maduro was a major blow to his opponents: just installed, the Constituent that he has endowed it with unlimited powers, has sacked an opponent of the toughest, the attorney general Luisa Ortega, the risk to aggravate further the tensions with the global community.

Also yesterday the new assembly loyal to the embattled Maduro fired the country's attorney general, Luisa Ortega, one of the president's most vociferous critics, sparking a firestorm of condemnation from the USA and Latin American nations.

Since April more than 120 people have been killed in unrest as rock-throwing protesters were met by state security forces firing rubber bullets and water cannon.

Speaking on television, Maduro said that of the 10 men who didn't get away, just one was a military officer and he had deserted a few months ago.

It will have sweeping powers to upend institutions and in theory could even remove Maduro, a fact held up by government supporters as a sign of its independence.

The accusations came hours after Reuters exclusively reported that only 3.7 million people had voted by 5:30pm in Sunday's (July 30) poll, according to internal elections data, compared to the 8.1 million people authorities said had voted that day.

Using his daily appearances on state television, Maduro has lashed out at several of the 40 countries that admonished him for seeing through the creation of the new assembly.

Despite its pledge of "absolute" support to Maduro, the military is under strong pressure, blamed by the opposition for violently quelling protests and urged by it to switch sides.

The opposition has called a mass march in the capital, raising fears of violence that could add to a death toll of more than 125 over the past four months.
