Venezuelan Official Detained at JFK

iWon News - Venezuelan Official Detained at JFK:
"Venezuela's foreign minister said he was illegally detained for 90 minutes by officials at a New York airport and accused them of treating him abusively by trying to frisk and handcuff him.

U.S. officials called Saturday's incident regrettable and said they had apologized to Foreign Minister Nicolas Maduro. Maduro called that insufficient and said Venezuela would seek a legal challenge through the U.N. to what he called a 'flagrant violation of international law' and his diplomatic immunity.

'We were detained for an hour and a half, threatened by police with being beaten,' Maduro told reporters at Venezuela's mission to the U.N. 'We hold the U.S. government responsible.'"

The Devil made us do it.
