    Venezuelans held a vigil in the capital, Caracas, Monday night for the more than 100 people killed during anti-government protests.

    The vigil was abruptly brought to an end after security forces broke up the gathering.

    Protests have gripped the country for months with critics blaming President Nicholas Maduro for wrecking the economy. They also say he wants to tighten his grip on Venezuela by overhauling the constitution.

    But Maduro and his supporters blame foreign interference.
