Crisis in Venezuela

With a fire causing new damage to a power plant in Bolívar State, President Nicolás Maduro states the power outages are "caused by U.S.-backed sabotage"; Guaidó says the outages are due to Maduro government "corruption and mismanagement".

Thousands of activists have gathered across Venezuela to protest against a nationwide blackout, shortages of basic necessities and the government of President Nicolas Maduro.
