The dueling processions follow a fierce opposition demonstration in Caracas on Wednesday in which a pro-government demonstrator and two student protesters died. Thousands of students have protested over the past ten days in the Venezuelan capital, in the biggest show of defiance to Maduro’s leadership since he took over from the late Hugo Chavez last year. In line with Venezuelan law, state TV did not cover Wednesday’s violence, in which protesters burned tires, set fire to police cars and attacked a government building.
