Violent protests in Venezuela continue

Protesters clash with police after a supreme court decision to remove an opposition congresswoman from office.

    Protesters fought with police in the Venezuelan capital Caracas in the latest round of clashes since anti-government protests began in February.

    The demonstrators, who included many students, were angry at a supreme court decision to remove congresswoman Maria Corina Machado from office.

    Many protesters were detained during the violence, which saw police fire tear gas and rubber coated steel bullets.
