    Venezuela's Maduro pelted by protesters leaving a rally - protests around the country

    Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro has been pelted with objects by angry protesters as he left a military event.

    Venezuelans in poor areas blocked streets and lit fires during scattered protests across the country on Tuesday night, and two people were killed during the growing unrest in the midst of a crippling economic crisis.

    Bernie Sanders is the most popular senator. Chew on that one.

    At least three people have been killed in Venezuela in protests against the government of President Nicolas Maduro.
    A teenager in the capital Caracas and a woman in San Cristobal, near the Colombian border, were shot dead.
    A national guardsman was killed south of the capital.

    No surprise at all. He's the one who promised to give, well, just about anything they want.
