Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro (pictured) will be indicted by the United States Justice Department for "narco-terrorism," US Senator Marco Rubio announced on Twitter on Thursday.

Earlier reports suggested Maduro, along with a dozen other people in the Venezuelan government and Colombian rebel group FARC, would be charged with drug trafficking crimes, including conspiracy to smuggle cocaine into the US.

The charges are expected to be formally announced during a briefing later in the day.
