Univision anchorman Jorge Ramos and five crew members were briefly detained on Monday at the presidential palace in Caracas, Venezuela.

The network tweeted on Monday evening that the team was at the Miraflores Palace "interviewing [Venezuelan President] Nicolás Maduro, but he didn't like the questions." They were "arbitrarily detained," and their "technical equipment was also confiscated." About 90 minutes later, Univision tweeted that the journalists had been released, and were back in their hotel.
