    Opposition supporters have gathered at the behest of their leader Juan Guaido in the Venezuelan capital Caracas to hold a vigil for those killed in the ongoing demonstrations to overthrow President Nicolas Maduro.

    Earlier this week, Guaido failed to rally support from the military during an uprising against Maduro's government.
