Venezuela's Maduro marries longtime companion

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and his longtime companion, former Attorney General Cilia Flores, have married in a civil ceremony.

Maduro made the announcement Tuesday on state TV during a meeting with allied governors.

The two wedded in a ceremony presided over by the ruling socialists' Caracas mayor, Jorge Rodriguez. Maduro tweeted photos.

Maduro and Flores have been a couple for two decades, ever since the failed 1992 coup led by the late President Hugo Chavez. Chavez's longtime foreign minister and chosen successor, the 50-year-old Maduro was elected president on April 14.

Flores has three children, Maduro one, both from previous unions.
