    The UN Security Council has held an emergency meeting on Venezuela following more violent anti-government protests. The US is warning that the country's food and political crises could escalate into a major conflict.

    Venezuela's government is now sending troops to the country's west after protests there led to looting.

    At least 43 people have died during six weeks of demonstrations.
