Venezuelan students clash with police

Members of the National Guard have clashed with anti-government students holding a protest in Caracas, Venezuela. Supporters and opponents of Venezuela's leftist government have been staging rival rallies amid spiraling discontent at the country's stubborn inflation and shortage of basic goods. Two anti-government protesters and a pro-Maduro demonstrator died in a rally last week, with no end in sight for the increasingly tense situation.
