The government of Guyana says the Venezuelan navy has entered its territorial waters and detained a US-operated ship.

 

Guyana said the Venezuelan actions in the disputed Essequibo region constituted "a serious threat to peace in the region".

 

The ship belongs to Texas-based company Anadarko, which has been granted a contract to look for oil in the area.

 

Caracas has said the ship was operating illegally in Venezuelan waters.
