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.
