This is the moment Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and his wife narrowly escaped an assassination attempt after a drone packed with explosives blew-up just inches away.
Dramatic footage shows the president's wife Cilia Flores cower in fears as she spots the drone coming towards them as he made a speech in Caracas on Saturday.
As Maduro was speaking about Venezuela's economy in a televised broadcast, the audio suddenly went and he and others on the podium looked up, visibly startled.
Scores of soldiers, who were lined up in ranks, can then be seen running from the blast just before the transmission was abruptly cut.
The President and the rest of the government escaped unharmed in what Communication Minister Jorge Rodriguez said was an "attack" against the leftist leader.
