Violence In Venezuela

Venezuela has seen a lot of violence in recent weeks, largely from the Maduro government and pro-government vigilantes called colectivos against people protesting against the government.  Here are some related stories:

From The Economist, after opposition leader Leopoldo López turns himself in, the violence continues.

From the New York Times, the protests swell "as places to rally disappear".

According to BBC News, and speaking of CNN, the latter has been threatened with expulsion.

From Yahoo News, the government has deployed paratroopers.

From Russia Today, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro accuses American President Barack Obama of inciting violence.  In other words, those yanquis once again become a convenient scapegoat.
