Protesters run from Venezuelan police during day of protest against Nicolás Maduro

This is the moment a group of protesters in Caracas, Venezuela on Wednesday fled from security forces as they were shot at with tear gas.

The group were among tens of thousands of people who took to the streets of Venezuela to voice their opposition to President Nicolás Maduro.

US President Donald Trump has said he recognises Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó as interim president.

The move came minutes after the 35-year-old declared himself as acting leader in Caracas on Wednesday.
