    Demonstrators in Venezuela have fought with security officers during protests calling for President Nicolas Maduro to step down.

    Police fired tear gas to disperse crowds that had gathered in the capital, Caracas.

    Demonstrations have increased in the past few weeks after the Supreme Court decided to assume the functions of the opposition-led congress.

    Although the court quickly reversed its decision, street protests have continued.
