Venezuelan Protesters Gather For Rally in Caracas After Guaido's Call

Supporters of Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido, who declared himself the country's interim president on 23 January, have taken to the streets of Caracas after he called on people via Twitter to support Western humanitarian aid.

Tensions in Venezuela escalated when Guaido declared himself interim president on 23 January, disputing Maduro's re-election, which took place last year.

Guaido was almost immediately recognised by the United States and some of its allies. Ten EU states also recognised Guaido after Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro refused to accept the ultimatum to hold snap elections.

Russia, China, Mexico, Turkey, Uruguay and several other states have said that they supported Maduro as the legitimate president.
