Venezuela expelled two U.S. Embassy officials on Tuesday as it accused domestic and foreign enemies of “attacking” ailing President Hugo Chavez.

Venezuelan Vice President Nicolas Maduro accused a U.S. Embassy attache of seeking military support for a plot against the government.

David Delmonaco, an Air Force attache for the U.S. Embassy in Caracas, was expelled Tuesday “for being implicated in conspiratorial plans,” the country’s information ministry said.

Venezuelan Foreign Minister Elias Jaua said a second U.S. Embassy staffer had been declared “persona non grata” and would be expelled within 24 hours.
