Watch as the President of Venezuela escapes an apparent assassination attempt while giving a speech.

The weapon of choice here was not a gun, but rather a drone! Yes, a drone was loaded with an explosive as it headed for the political figure, but it detonated before it reached him.

You can see security rush over to shield him while others ran for their life. This is scary and yes the threat is real.

Now some in the United States are worried that this could soon be the weapon of choice for terrorists here.

Several people are being questioned in this incident and the president has blamed Columbia for the attempted assassination on him.
