Demonstrators clashed with police in Caracas on Sunday as anger at the government flared again. Anti-government street protests by Venezuelans fed up with violent crime, shortages of basic items such as flour and cooking oil and high inflation have roiled Venezuela since mid-February. At least 27 people — including opposition activists, pro-government supporters and one police officer — have died across the country in the protests.
