U.S. steps up pressure on Venezuela with more sanctions

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Treasury sanctioned 10 Venezuelans on Thursday, including a number of government officials, in the latest step by the Trump administration to pressure Caracas over what it sees as an erosion of democracy in the oil-rich country.

The Treasury made the announcement in a statement on its website.
