CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido said on Wednesday that the vice president of the opposition-controlled National Assembly had been detained by authorities from President Nicolas Maduro's government.

Edgar Zambrano, the assembly vice president, said on Twitter that agents from the SEBIN intelligence agency had surprised him and, after refusing to let him out of his vehicle, were using a tow truck to take him to the SEBIN's Caracas headquarters.
