Venezuelan students clash with police over high court ruling

3 March 2016 13:55


Students in the Venezuelan city of San Cristobal have clashed with police in protest at a ruling by the country’s Supreme Court, which seeks to limit legislative powers of the opposition.

Protests broke out on Wednesday in the western city, where the students wearing masks set up road blocks and threw Molotov cocktails at officers.

The protesters are against a Tuesday decision by the high court that stripped the opposition-led National Assembly of power to remove judgesand thus restrict the powers of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, who faces allegation of packing the Supreme Court with allies.
