CARACAS (Reuters) – Venezuela’s state prosecutor’s office said on Friday it would open an investigation into opposition leader Juan Guaido after the interior minister presented photos on state television showing Guaido in the company of two suspected members of a Colombian drug-trafficking group.
Guaido on Friday said the two men had asked to take a photo with him when he secretly crossed into Colombia from Venezuela in February via an informal border route after a Venezuelan court had barred him from leaving the country.

He denied knowing who the men were. “We didn’t ask for their criminal record to take a photo,” he told reporters in Caracas.
Venezuelan Interior Minister Nestor Reverol said on state television that the two men were leaders of a “Colombian paramilitary organization” called the Rastrojos. Reverol said he would send the photos as evidence to the state prosecutor’s office, which later opened the investigation.
