The final stretch of Venezuela's presidential race to replace Hugo Chavez coincides with a delicate anniversary for the opposition: 11 years since a brief coup against the late leftist leader. On Tuesday, Venezuela stepped up security and closed its borders earlier than usual ahead of Sunday's presidential election after acting President Nicolas Maduro claimed former US officials hatched a plot to kill him.
