Univision lead anchor Jorge Ramos and his crew detained briefly then released by Maduro regime in Venezuela equipment confiscated

The six-person team was held for more than two hours and had their equipment confiscated, Ramos told reporters on Monday evening after arriving back at his Caracas hotel which was surrounded by intelligence agents.

The story is devloping....

Univision reported that its veteran journalist and crew were "being arbitrarily detained" after the embattled leader objected to questions Ramos asked him.

Both the USA and Mexican governments have shown their concern for Ramos's wellbeing after the news broke out.

"Very shortly into the interview, Maduro didn't like the line of questioning, and they stopped the interview", Zamora said.

"The illegitimate Maduro regime's attempts to blockade global aid intended for the Venezuelan people are shameful", said Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin in a statement Monday.

As Maduro's PR drive to "rehabilitate" his image continues by offering interviews to selected media outlets like the BBC or US network ABC, he insists on his main talking point of late: accusing the Trump administration of creating a crisis to justify an intervention in Venezuela. But "in the middle of the call, they took his phone away".

"They interrogated us. They put us in a security room". Kimberly Breier, the State Department's assistant secretary in the bureau of Western hemisphere affairs, tweeted that the State Department had been told of the detention and "insist on their immediate release; the world is watching".

Sanders declined to call Maduro a dictator and bestow the title of president upon Juan Guaido, the elected leader of the nation's national assembly, in a Univision interview last week.

In addition, Ramos said at the end of the interview he showed Maduro a video shot last Sunday of three children in Venezuela behind a trash truck looking for food.

CNN reports that Daniel Coronell, Univision's president of news, confirmed the material is now in the hands of government officials.
