Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro says a "US spy" has been captured near two oil refineries in the country's north-western state of Falcón.

In a televised address, Mr Maduro said the man was seized with weapons and large amounts of cash near the Amuay and Cardon refineries on Thursday.

He said the man was "serving as a marine on CIA bases in Iraq". He gave no further details, BBC reported.

The US has so far made no public comment on the issue
