'Two killed' in latest Venezuela protests

Two people have died from gunshot wounds during protests against President Nicolas Mauro's government, eyewitnesses and local media say.

They say Argenis Hernandez was shot in the stomach on Friday in the city of Valencia and later died in hospital.

Also on Friday, bus driver Wilfredo Rey died after being shot by a group of hooded gunmen in San Cristobal.

At least 33 people have now been killed during weeks of protests over the high inflation and basic good shortages.
