Venezuela's new President Nicolas Maduro was roughly pushed aside Friday by a youth in a red shirt who ran on stage during his inaugural address in the National Assembly and grabbed the microphone.

The incident caused momentary confusion as national television coverage of the event briefly went off the air, returning after Maduro had regained his composure and the youth had been moved off stage.

"Incident overcome," said Maduro, saying he would speak to the man after the address and then continuing with his speech.
