Ramos said 17 minutes into the interview at the palace, he showed Maduro a video of Venezuelan youths eating from a garbage truck.

Although the team of six has supposedly since been released, the network said that the team's technical equipment had all been confiscated by Maduro's people.

The story is devloping....

According to Daniel Coronell, chief news and digital officer, the press team were detained after Maduro "didn't like the questions" in their interview.

"He didn't like the things we were asking, about the lack of democracy in Venezuela, the torture of political prisoners, about the humanitarian crisis that they are living", Ramos told the outlet.

When confronted by Llamas over reports by the United Nations and worldwide human rights NGOs that make his administration responsible for thousands of deaths related to our humanitarian crisis, Maduro not only denied it in the strongest terms, but repeatedly accused Llamas of lying.

"I think what has to happen right now, I think there are serious questions about the recent election", Sanders said.

Kimberly Breier, the assistant secretary of state for the Western Hemisphere, said the State Department had received the news and said "we insist on their immediate release; the world is watching".

As Maduro's PR drive to "rehabilitate" his image continues by offering interviews to selected media outlets like the BBC or USA 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. I didn't want to give them my cell phone, so they turned off the light in the room, and a group of agents came in.

Ramos called the episode a "violation" and said Maduro's aides still had the tapes: "They have stolen our work and are trying to keep what is happening from airing", he said. After displaying the video, the Univision anchor said Maduro walked off the interview and summoned his communications minister, who told Ramos the interview had not been authorized.
