Riot Police Flood Streets of Caracas

Ahead of protests expected in the Venezuelan capital


The streets of Venezula's capital Caracas were filled with security forces armed with riot gear and water cannon Tuesday morning ahead of planned marches by supporters and opponents of President Nicolas Maduro.

The protests were scheduled less than 24 hours after a 17-year-old student protester became the fourth person killed from political unrest during the past week, opposition activists said.
