Venezuela opposition march over Henrique Capriles ban

Thousands of Venezuelans have marched in protest against the banning from politics of opposition leader Henrique Capriles for 15 years. In Caracas, police used tear gas to prevent demonstrators reaching the offices of the national ombudsman. Saturday's protest came after a week of anti-government demonstrations. They were initially sparked by a Supreme Court ruling to curb the powers of the national assembly, a move which was later overturned. (BBC)
