CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — A spectator has rushed the stage at the inauguration of late leader Hugo Chavez's hand-picked successor, briefly interrupting the ceremony.
The man in a red, long-sleeved jacket ran toward President Nicolas Maduro and grabbed the microphone, pushing him aside.
"Nicolas, my name is Jenry," the man said, before security guards converged from all sides.
The broadcast on state television cut away, then returned to the lectern and Maduro, who continued his speech.
