U.S. 'concerned' about turn of events in Venezuela

His death marked the sixth fatality in nearly three weeks of escalating protests. The opposition sees the government measures as turning Venezuela into a almost full-blown dictatorship.

Colombia and 10 other countries asked Venezuela to "guarantee" its people's right to protest on Monday as five people have already been killed in ongoing anti-government protests.

"We are extremely concerned that Rosneft's control of a major U.S. energy supplier could pose a grave threat to American energy security", the six senators wrote in an April 4 letter to the U.S. Treasury secretary. "We're watching it closely and working with others.to communicate those concerns", Tillerson added, according to Reuters.

Mr Maduro says that beneath a peaceful facade, the protests are little more than opposition efforts to start a coup to end socialism in Venezuela.

"I am motivated by the hunger that we are going through ..."

CARACAS, Venezuela - President Nicolas Maduro may be struggling to feed Venezuela but his socialist administration still managed to make a $500,000 donation to Donald Trump's inauguration, records released Wednesday show.

The ministry later said it was also investigating the Wednesday afternoon shooting death of Paola Andreina Ramírez Gómez, 23, in plaza San Carlos de San Cristóbal.

UFC 210 was full of controversy and head scratchers in different areas, and Twitter was all over every aspect of the night. Known as a feared knockout artist, Johnson spent the entire fight looking to take down Cormier, a former Olympic wrestler.

Venezuela is in crisis, and while there is no simple solution to Venezuela's woes, the opposition argues it can fix the country's failing economy.

Demonstrators hurl flaming objects at riot police during a rally in Caracas against Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro on Wednesday.

Maduro's camp vowed not to be outdone by the opposition.

Tens of thousands of protesters made an unsuccessful attempt to march to downtown Caracas as security forces fired tear gas and rubber bullets into the crowd.

But the opposition is now hoping to flood the streets with protesters, whom they are urging to remain peaceful. The court backpedaled and restored power to the body after the abortive attempt drew anger both in Venezuela and the worldwide community.

Opponents of President Nicolas Maduro called on Venezuelans to take to the streets on Wednesday for what they dubbed the "mother of all marches" against the embattled socialist leader.

Unidad Venezuela, a coalition of opposition parties, also organized marches in each of the country's 24 states.

The method works in a way that is similar to how functional near-infrared spectroscopy is now used to measure brain activity. "It's closer than you think", she said speaking at the company's annual developer conference in San Jose, California.

Two people have died as a result of the so-called "mother of all marches" taking place in Venezuela.

Pressure on Maduro has risen in an economic crisis aggravated by a fall in prices for Venezuela's crucial oil exports, which has triggered severe shortages of food and medicine.

"Today the people stood by Maduro!" the president said, blasting his rivals as "anti-Christs".

Mark Toner, the US State Department spokesman, echoed that call in a statement Tuesday, pressing for calm and accountability during the protests. "Whoever wants to see the script written to generate violence, death ... read the statement".

In the statement in question, written by Toner and titled "Non-Violence and Accountability During Protests in Venezuela" the USA government urged "demonstrators to express themselves non-violently" and also reminded the Venezuelan police and other forces "of their legal and constitutional responsibilities to protect, not prevent, peaceful demonstrations".

On Tuesday, the Venezuelan Penal Forum, a nongovernmental organization, said security forces in the country have carried out 538 arrests since early April. It also reported multiple instances of torture and cruelty to detainees.
