Dozens hurt, 1 dead in violent day of protests in Venezuela

Dozens hurt, 1 dead in violent day of protests in Venezuela

Death toll in Venezuela's continuing anti-government protests has risen to 39 with the two latest deaths.

Protests have occurred nearly daily, with thousands clashing with riot police.

Other protesters took to the streets on Wednesday (May 10) armed with jars of excrement to hurl at police.

Protesters with shields and masks responded by hurling Molotov cocktails, paint bombs and stones.

Ajith Kumar's new film also stars Akshara Haasan, Kajal Aggarwal and Vivek Oberoi, none of who feature in the teaser. Ajith's superstar screen presence and powerful lines in the clip have instantly driven his fans insane .

The demonstrations besetting Venezuela, both for and against the government of President Nicolas Maduro, have also left nearly 2,000 under arrest.

Venezuelan opposition leader and Miranda state Governor Henrique Capriles pointed to possible cracks in the military under the unpopular president, saying there are some within the military ranks who want to "defend the constitution". Maduro is vowing to resolve the crisis by holding a special assembly to rewrite the nation's constitution, though opposition leaders have refused to participate. Socialist Venezuela has lost many regional allies as several Latin American countries have moved to the right in recent years. Authorities also announced that Anderson Dugarte, 32, died from a gunshot wound he suffered Monday at a protest in Merida.

Another 93 people were injured during clashes between protesters and security forces and a pro-Maduro militia in Caracas on Wednesday.

National guardsmen launched tear gas and a group of armed pro-government militiamen harassed protesters as they tried to march to the Supreme Court. "Freedom!" Militiamen approached, all dressed in dark colors with pieces of cloth covering their faces. Some reports say demonstrators are planning to throw excrement at security forces, using so-called "poopootov" cocktails, in a new tactic that has sparked controversy among the opposition.

"Another young Venezuelan assassinated for your sick power ambition", Capriles wrote on Twitter. The young man bravely played his violin as tear gas shells fired by police fell on the protesters around him.

"There's nothing explosive here".

The development came during hearing into a petition seeking an independent probe into the violence. The following hearing on the matter will occur on July 7.

The near-daily agitations have seen hundreds of Venezuelans blocking the streets of the capital city, staging protests with broken concrete, twisted metal and piles of trash. They called the action unsanitary and inappropriate even if it is used on the government they loathe.
