Venezuela in crisis: How did the country get here?

Venezuela's National Assembly, the opposition-controlled legislative body, declared President Nicolas Maduro a "usurper" last week, deepening the political and humanitarian crisis that has engulfed the country.

The declaration came about a week after Maduro was sworn in for a controversial second six-year term following an election largely boycotted by the opposition and considered fraudulent by many within the international community.

During the ceremony, President Maduro promised to "construct 21st-century socialism" and labelled his opponents as imperialists and fascists.
