A former Green Beret said an effort he’s been running to overthrow Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro -- which the government in Caracas said it stopped in its tracks -- is ongoing, with 52 men, including two Americans, on the ground.

Speaking by phone, Jordan Goudreau acknowledged that some of the soldiers working with him were captured or killed by security forces on Sunday and Monday as they tried to enter the country from Colombia.
