Venezuelans show support for Guaido in church after return to country

Venezuelans congregate outside a Caracas church where the partially-recognised interim president Juan Guaido celebrated Mass at the beginning of Lent on Wednesday.

Guaido returned to the country Monday despite threat of arrest for breaching a travel ban imposed after an attempt to oust Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro with the backing of mass support.

Guaido has been recognised as interim president by a host of European nations, including Spain, Germany, the United Kingdom and France, as well as the US.
