Venezuela: Military vehicle drives into protesters

Crowds gathered to join the opposition, despite the government’s vow to end what it calls an ‘attempted coup’.

    The government of President Nicholas Maduro says it is facing down a coup by supporters of opposition leader and self-declared interim president, Juan Guaido.

    Speaking from a military base, Guaido and his supporters say the time has come to confront Maduro's government.

    The ultimate loyalty of the country's powerful military is still in doubt.
