The United States is to snap back sanctions on Venezuela’s crucial oil industry after President Nicolas Maduro’s government continued its “repression” of opponents, US officials said Wednesday.

Caracas had “fallen short” on key areas ahead of an April 18 deadline set by Washington for progress after Maduro’s opponents were not allowed to run against him in upcoming elections, senior administration officials said.
