President Nicolas Maduro’s government kept dozens of student protesters behind bars on Friday as unrest still rumbled across Venezuela following this week’s violence at political rallies that killed three.
Student demonstrators began gathering again in various cities after blocking roads and burning tires into the night to denounce repression of protests as well as a litany of complaints against Maduro from crime to shortages.
Despite a presidential ban on protests, about 200 people converged on Friday morning in Caracas’ Plaza Altamira, a heartland of opposition protests in the past.
