A man is arrested during a protest against new emergency powers decreed this week by President Nicolas Maduro, in Caracas on May 18, 2016Riot police firing tear gas blocked a 1,000-strong anti-government protest in the center of Caracas on Wednesday, one of 20 opposition rallies across crisis-hit Venezuela venting fury at President Nicolas Maduro and demanding his ouster. The demonstrations were the first major test of a state of emergency the unpopular Maduro imposed this week that gives broad powers to security forces to maintain public order.
