Venezuela opposition leader taken from home

Leading Venezuela opposition figure Leopoldo Lopez has been taken from his home, according to tweets from his wife. “They just took Leopoldo from the house. We do not know where he is or where he is being taken,” Lopez’s wife Lilian Tintori tweeted early Tuesday morning. Lopez had been under house arrest since early July. The move comes after a controversial election Sunday establishing a new legislative body made up entirely of President Nicolas Maduro supporters.
