The Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro has accused the opposition of trying to provoke bloodshed – declaring he has the loyalty of his military.

Meanwhile security forces have turned to ever more violent tactics to disperse opposition supporters from rallying on the streets. Observers say at least four people were killed and 230 others were injured by tear gas and bullets during yesterday’s violent clashes.

And a warning, there are scenes of violence.
