WASHINGTON, May 11 (Reuters) - CIA 
Director Mike Pompeo said on Thursday 
there are large caches of weapons in 
Venezuela and a risk of them falling into
 the wrong hands as the country grapples
 with economic crisis and street protests.
"It is a real threat," the Central Intelligence 
Agency director said, under questioning from 
Republican Senator Marco Rubio, during
 a Senate hearing on worldwide security threats.
However, he said, "We have not seen any
 of those major arms transfers." (Reporting
