BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany favours sanctions targeting President Nicolas Maduro and his immediate aides over violence against opposition protesters, a government spokeswoman said on Monday.

"We are in favour of sanctions targeting Maduro and people immediately close to him specifically and that do not make the lives of Venezuelan citizens worse," Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Adebahr said during a regular government news conference.
