At least one person died and dozens more were wounded during heavy clashes between police and people protesting against Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro in Caracas on Sunday. The protest is the latest in a series of anti-government demonstrations to take place in the capital. Police used tear gas on the crowds, hundreds of whom were reportedly arrested after throwing smoke bombs Last week Maduro's government banned the main opposition leader Henrique Capriles from running in presidential race for 15 years. In a response to the state's decision, Capriles called his supporters to participate in mass demonstrations.
