Opposition leader Juan Guaido,who is supported in his claim to be the legitimate interim leader by around 50 nations yesterday called for a huge turnout in Caracas.

Maduro, who blames US-backed sabotage for the massive blackouts that have deprived millions of power, called for a counter pro-government march "in defense of peace" that drew hundreds to the streets of Caracas.

Meanwhile, the United States kept up the international pressure on Maduro to step down.Vice President Mike Pence announced fresh sanctions against 34 vessels belonging to Venezuela's state oil company and two companies that ship crude to Cuba.
