Univision anchor Jorge Ramos and five members of his team were detained and later released in Caracas, Venezuela¬†by President Nicolas Maduro on Monday during an interview in which the embattled president reportedly “didn’t like the questions” he was being asked.

Ramos was interviewing Maduro when the president “became upset with the line of questioning and ordered the seizure of the video and Univision equipment, including TV and phones, as well as the detention of the journalists,” Univision reported.

“He didn’t like the things we were asking, about the lack of democracy in Venezuela, the torture of political prisoners, about the humanitarian crisis that they are living,” Ramos said upon his release.
