    Venezuela's capital has seen more intense clashes as tens of thousands of anti-government protesters marked 50 days of their demonstrations.

    At least 46 people have died in clashes since the protests began almost two months ago but Saturday witnessed one of the biggest turnouts in the seven weeks of rallies.

    The protesters blame President Nicolas Maduro for the country's acute food and economic crises.

    Al Jazeera's John Holman reports from the bordering Colombian city of Cucuta.
