The owner of a radio station in western Venezuela says dozens of National Guard soldiers have seized broadcasting equipment as part of an investigation launched by the country's state telecommunications commission.
Jose Ramon Socorro says about 50 armed soldiers entered Kalor 91.1 FM and took away the equipment.
Socorro calls Thursday's incident an armed assault. He says the troops did not provide details on the reason for the investigation or confiscation.
Representatives of the state telecommunications commission have not answered telephone calls seeking comment.
Press freedom watchdogs have accused Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez of trying to suppress the country's independent media.
