At least four people have been killed, including a police officer, after thousands of Venezuelans opposing President Nicolas Maduro took to the streets of Caracas following two weeks of anti-government protests across the country.
Gunfire erupted in the centre of the capital when armed members of a pro-government vigilante group arrived on motorcycles and began firing at more than 100 anti-Maduro student protesters clashing with security forces, the AP news agency reported.
As the crowd fled in panic, one demonstrator fell to the ground with a bullet wound in his head. Onlookers screamed "assassins"' as they rushed the 24-year-old student, later identified by family members as Bazil D'Acosta, to a police vehicle.
Also killed was the leader of a pro-government 23rd of January collective, as supporters of Venezuela's government call themselves.

So 5000 of your local dollars is about 800.00 American or 1/.16. That is pretty good. So in US dollars milk isn't bad but...they don't have milk readily available. Interesting. Clearly the people don't like their leader. And it seems the police don't care for him either if they aren't fighting back that hard. Why don't people just step down when everyone wants them gone. Stay safe
