Venezuela police fire tear gas on demo, lawmaker hurt

A top Venezuelan opposition lawmaker was injured Thursday when police fired tear gas and forcefully broke up protesters demanding the authorities move forward with a recall referendum against President Nicolas Maduro. It was the fourth time in recent days that police have cracked down on protesters trying to march on the National Electoral Board (CNE), the gatekeeper to a referendum the opposition says must be held this year to stop a country in crisis from exploding into unrest. Led by a group of opposition lawmakers, the protesters defied a cordon of police and soldiers.
