    Venezuela's chief prosecutor is urging restraint from both the government and opposition after the deaths of two more people during protests.

    At least 26 people have now died in more than three weeks of demonstrations.

    Protesters are angry over the spiralling economic crisis and are demanding that President Nicolas Maduro calls an election.
