Authorities ordered the detention Friday of four people, including an outspoken journalist, an opposition-aligned businessmen and a Cuban dissident, for the allegedly plotting the 2004 assassination of a leading prosecutor. A court ordered that Patricia Poleo, Nelson Mezerhane, Eugenio Anez Nunez and Salvador Romani be detained without charges, a statement from the Information Ministry said. Prosecutor Danilo Anderson, a strong backer of President Hugo Chavez's government, was killed Nov. 18, 2004 when a bomb exploded in his sport-utility vehicle in Caracas. Known to many Venezuelans as the "super prosecutor," he was preparing a case against nearly 400 people who backed a short-lived coup against Chavez in 2002.
