Venezuela: Maduro Abducts Legislature’s #2 Using Tow Truck

Venezuela’s secret police (SEBIN) abducted the first Vice President of the National Assembly Edgar Zambrano late Wednesday, hauling him away in a tow truck. Zambrano’s is the first arrest of a lawmaker in the aftermath of the April 30 attempted military uprising led by President Juan Guaidó.

The move comes as President Nicolás Maduro (pictured) has clamped down on political opposition and consolidated power in his government’s hands. | Federico Parra/AFP/Getty Images.
