“This morning, US Secret Service Uniformed Division Officers assisted US Department of State Diplomatic Security Service Special Agents in executing federal arrests warrants against individuals who were inside the Venezuelan Embassy”, the Secret Service statement said.

Benjamin cited Venezuela’s Deputy Foreign Minister Carlos Ron as denouncing the US actions as a violation of the Vienna Conventions and slamming the arrest of Embassy Protection Collective members.

“We call on the US government to sign a Protecting Power Agreement to ensure the integrity of our Embassy in DC and the US Embassy in Caracas. We do not authorize any of the coup representatives to enter the Embassy”, he was quoted as saying by the CODEPINK activist.

Two officers, one in uniform bearing the word “POLICE” and another in green fatigues, were spotted in the 3rd floor window at which the remaining activists had been congregating for several days.

I couldn’t get a photo, but my colleague w/ a real camera may have. Stay tuned.

Consensus seems to be police may bring any detainees out this way. Street is blocked. pic.twitter.com/mpiBBGgwy8 See Marissa J. Lang's other Tweets

The activists from the Embassy Protection Collective have been living inside the embassy since 10 April in a bid to protect it from US attempts to seize the facility and hand it over to supporters of Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido. The group was invited by the embassy’s Venezuelan diplomats, who were forced to leave US soil.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro earlier slammed US attempts to seize the property of the country’s embassy, pointing to its “inviolability” under international treaties regulating the activities of diplomatic missions.
