US lifts sanctions for Venezuelan general who defied Maduro

The US has lifted sanctions on a top Venezuelan general who broke ranks with President Maduro, trying to help the opposition regain momentum in the face of a government crackdown last week. US VP Mike Pence said Tuesday that the immediate lifting of financial sanctions for Gen. Manuel Figuera is intended to encourage others in the military to abandon their support for Maduro.
