Dramatic video shows the moment a pair of former US Special Forces soldiers were captured by Venezuelan troops after what officials are calling a coup attempt to oust President Nicolás Maduro. Footage shows Luke Denman, 34, and Airan Berry, 41 with their hands up in the air in the port city of La Guaira, being walked to shore at gunpoint,according to the Daily Mail.
