Venezuela reacts after the US assets of six members of the newly elected constituent assembly were frozen and says Washington is "making a fool of itself in front of the world."

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro branded the sanctions as "insolent," as pressure piled up on him abroad and at home over his plan to elect a new body to rewrite the constitution.
