Anti-government protests in Venezuela

There have been near-daily protests, some of them violent, in the capital Caracas and other cities, over what Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro's critics say are deteriorating economic conditions and corruption.

Anti-government protests in Venezuela

The Venezuelan government ordered paratroopers Thursday to a border city where growing student protests began over two weeks ago, with President Nicolas Maduro angrily rejecting US calls for dialogue.

The nationwide demonstrations, led by students and the opposition, have left at least four people dead and dozens hurt in the biggest challenge to Maduro since he took power from the late Hugo Chavez last year.
