Shocking scenes continue to arrive from Venezuela, where supporters of Juan Guaido are clashing with military units loyal to Nicolas Maduro.
Fighting broke out over a military base near Caracas, where Guaido called for a final push to remove Maduro from office. The US Government, including a presidential tweet from Donald Trump, encouraged Guaido not to back down, as Maduro’s Government insisted that the coup was easily defeated.
A shocking video from Caracas revealed just how tense the situation is, as an armored personnel carrier ran over a group of protesters who were throwing rocks at another armored vehicle. There are still no comprehensive reports about the number of casualties in the clashes, which began in the run up to the usual mass demonstrations on May Day.
