    Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro suggested talks with opposition parties before a crucial vote.

    The government has barred protests in the run-up to a poll to elect a constituent assembly, but demonstrators intend to defy the ban.

    A national strike led by the opposition is now in its second day.
