Police Drag Venezuela Opposition Leaders From Their Homes

State security agents reportedly took two of Venezuela’s opposition leaders from their homes in the middle of the night Tuesday, in the aftermath of a widely condemned vote granting President NicolΓ s Maduro nearly unlimited powers. A video appeared to show opposition leader and former Caracas Mayor Antonio Ledezma being taken from his home while a woman screamed for help. β€œThey’re taking Ledezma!” she says. β€œIt’s a dictatorship!” Another opposition leader, Leopoldo Lopez, was apparently dragged from his home after midnight by security forces, in a video shared by Lopez’s wife. β€œThey’ve just taken Leopoldo from the house,” Lilian Tintori posted on Twitter. β€œWe don’t know where he is or where they’re taking him.” Both of the men had recently posted videos online criticizing Maduro, according to the Associated Press.
