Venezuela's capital faces water rationing

Restrictions announced in Caracas as country grapples with anti-government protests and scarcity of basic goods.

    A drought in Venezuela's capital Caracas has led the government to start rationing water for at least four months. It could leave some of the city's seven million people without water for up to three days a week. The rationing comes as Venezuela grapples with anti-government protest and a shortage of basic goods.
