Anti-government protesters in the western Venezuelan city of Maracaibo burn a truck. Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
Sporadic protests flared in different parts of Venezuela on Wednesday (February 25), a day after a policeman shot dead a teenager during a demonstration against President Nicolas Maduro's government in the volatile city of San Cristobal. The worst unrest was again in San Cristobal, but in the western city of Maracaibo, hooded opposition members burned a truck which Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said was carrying medicines. Maduro, the successor to late socialist leader Hugo Chavez, condemned the killed of 14-year-old Kluibert Roa, but the exact circumstances of his death remain unclear. Relatives and students insist he was a bystander to the protests and targeted at point-blank range. Authorities say he was shot when police were cornered by thugs.
