Venezuelan violinist detained over anti-Maduro protests

Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro has sworn in a controversial new Constituent Assembly that has the power to rewrite the constitution despite massive protests.

As the opposition plans more demonstrations against the all-powerful superbody, one prominent protester is not out on the streets.

Violinist Willy Artiaga is facing years in prison after he was arrested and charged with instigating violence.
