One city sits at centre of Venezuela's unrest

Anti-government demonstrators have set up barricades in San Cristobal's streets to protest inflation and corruption.

    In Venezuela's western state of Tachira, the city of San Cristobal has been the centre of anti-government protests that began last month.

    Middle class protesters have set up barricades to show their anger towards the government for inflation, food shortages, high murder rates, and corruption.

    Meanwhile, pro-government protesters say they just want peace.
