CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro on Wednesday said he will seek extradition from the United States of Jordan Goudreau, head of Florida security firm Silvercorp USA.

Goudreau said he helped organize the incursion of the South American nation that ultimately failed and led to the capture of two American citizens.
