Doctors rallied in Venezuela in the latest street protests against President Nicolas Maduro as the death toll climbed to 49 with the deepening unrest entering its eighth week.
New clashes broke out between protesters and police on the outskirts of Caracas, where demonstrators blocked streets with barricades. After marches by various civil groups, it was the turn of the Venezuelan Medical Federation to vent its frustrations on the streets.
More than a thousand of its sympathisers marched towards the health ministry in Caracas. Police fired tear gas to drive them back in scenes familiar after weeks of turmoil.
