Venezuelan protesters on anti-government demonstrations

Demonstrations against the government of President Nicolas Maduro have been taking place in cities throughout Venezuela.

They started last week as students complained about high crime rates and a lack of security in their universities - but thousands of other Venezuelans have since joined in, demonstrating against high rates of inflation and the shortage of basic goods such as milk and toilet paper.

People in the streets of Venezuela's capital, Caracas, talked to the BBC about what they are demonstrating against.
