    Nicolas Maduro has been sworn in for the second time as the president of Venezuela.

    The government-controlled Constituent Assembly held a surprise ceremony for him, which the opposition denounced as unconstitutional.

    They largely boycotted Sunday's election, saying it would be neither free nor fair.
