Renegade helicopter pilot Oscar Pérez was killed in a nine-hour long siege near the capital, Caracas, on Monday, the Venezuelan government has confirmed, APA reports quoting BBC.

 

The pilot was labelled a "terrorist" by the government after he threw grenades at government buildings from a helicopter he stole on 27 June.

 

He had been on the run since then.

 

Police tracked him down to a house where he was hiding along with members of the anti-government cell he founded.
