Clashes broke in Caracas, on Wednesday, as opposition supporters rallied against the government administration of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro.

Earlier in the day, Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido declared himself “Interim-President of Venezuela” during an opposition rally.

Juan Guaido, who is the leader of the opposition and the head of the National Assembly, declared the inauguration of Nicolas Maduro, on January 10, and swore himself in as Interim President of Venezuela.

US President Donald Trump was among the first world leaders to recognise Guaido as acting president. Other governments including Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia followed suit.

Thousands of supporters of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro rallied in Caracas in protest against the announcement.

Little problem for this coup attempt : the army sides with Maduro…
