CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuela’s Supreme Court said on Tuesday it had revoked house arrest measures granted to Leopoldo Lopez and Antonio Ledezma and put them back in jail because the opposition leaders were planning to flee.

The men were taken from their houses in overnight raids, their families said on Tuesday.
