Venezuela: Tensions rise amid wait for vote audit
Tensions are high in Venezuela as opposition leader Henrique Capriles pressures the National Electoral Council to permit a complete audit of the April 14 presidential election.

 

Capriles called on the council to announce by the end of Thursday that it will allow his team to also examine registers containing voters' signatures and fingerprints. "We are not going to allow you to make fools out of us," Capriles said, adding, "We are not going to accept a flawed audit." (AP)
