    This comes a day after violent clashes between government security forces and people loyal to self-proclaimed "interim president" Juan Guaido took place in Caracas.

    Supporters of Venezuelan Presient Nicolas Maduro are participating in an annual International Workers' Day march in Caracas.

    In the meantime, people loyal to the opposition have joined a rally after Juan Guaido had called for the 'largest protest' in Venezuelan's history. 

    The political crisis in Venezuela has recently entered its third month. It began in January after US-backed opposition leader Juan Guaido proclaimed himself Venezuela's interim president in an attempt to challenge Nicolas Maduro's re-election.

    Mr Maduro, who has the support of China and Russia, among others, accused Guaido of plotting to overthrow him with the help of Washington.
