Protests in Venezuela

Protests continue more than three weeks after student-run demonstrations in Venezuela sparked deep tensions and violence. Anti and pro-government demonstrations are expanding across the divided country as they head into the holiday week marking the anniversary of former President Hugo Chavez's death. --Leanne Burden Seidel (32 photos total)

Dueling demos of pro- and anti-government protesters have been taking to the streets since February 4 in a sign of the deep polarization of this oil-rich but economically and social troubled country, where three weeks of demonstrations have left 14 people dead, posing the greatest challenge yet to Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro's 11-month-old government.
