Univision crew, including Jorge Ramos, detained in Venezuela

The network posted to Twitter on Monday evening that Jorge Ramos and the rest of his team are "being arbitrarily detained at the Miraflores Palace in Caracas".

It added that the crew's technical equipment was confiscated.

Coronell tweeted that he had spokmen with Ramos, who told him that he and his team had been freed.

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

"According to Rodriguez, Jorge Ramos insulted Maduro and that's why they took that decision, " Janiot said.

The EU also warned that Britain faced the prospect of either a chaotic exit from the bloc or delaying its planned departure date. Such an arrangement would likely mean that Britain would have to continue to accept the free flow of immigrants from Europe.

'We insist on their immediate release; the world is watching, ' tweeted Kimberly Breier, assistant secretary of state for western hemisphere affairs.

Rubio reported that Ramos was on the phone with his office and was in the middle of explaining that he was being detained by Maduro when the phone abruptly hung up.

According to CNN, the Venezuelan president told ABC's Tom Llamas that the USA government is "trying to fabricate a crisis to justify political escalation and a military intervention in Venezuela to bring a war to South America" because the Trump administration is backing opposition leader Juan Guaido.

Venezuela is now in the midst of a tense political standoff as opposition leader Juan Guaido has called for new elections and an influx of foreign aid into the country. Several trucks full of humanitarian aid were blocked from entering the country over the weekend.
