In photos: clashes between officials and protesters this Wednesday

TODAY VENEZUELA – The Venezuelan opposition, on Wednesday, June 14, held a new “stand” that left at least 28 injured, including a legislator, in the protests against the government of President Nicolás Maduro.

In turn, Maduro again accused the opposition of being responsible for the violence, which has left 68 dead and thousands injured in more than two months.

In the photos by AFP, security forces fired tear gas and fired pellets at Altamira, an opposition stronghold east of the capital, as demonstrators gathered to walk toward the strategic Francisco Fajardo motorway.
