    The Venezuelan opposition leader, Juan Guaido, has reportedly scheduled some "tactical actions" on toppling Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro for 6 April. Meanwhile, Maduro's supporters have reportedly organised another demonstration in support of the Venezuelan president.

    Venezuelan Deputy Foreign Minister Yvan Gil said earlier that the Venezuelan government is becoming less concerned over the presence of the opposition in the streets, as popular support for it is weakening.

    The demonstration takes place after the Venezuelan Constituent Assembly ruled on 2 April to extend judicial proceedings against self-proclaimed "interim president" Guaido. A day later, head of the Venezuelan Constituent Assembly, Diosdado Cabello, explained that the move meant stripping Guaido of his parliamentary immunity.
