CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuelan authorities detained former Oil Minister Eulogio del Pino and former state oil company PDVSA [PDVSA.UL] president Nelson Martinez overnight as a part of a broad anti-corruption probe, two sources told Reuters on Thursday. It was not immediately clear why the two men were detained. One source said it appeared they had been held for questioning. State prosecutor Tarek Saab was due to hold a press conference to announce new arrests later on Thursday. (Reporting by Alexandra Ulmer)
