Hundreds rally for democracy

Hundreds of protesters rallied Sunday to demand the "resurrection" of Venezuelan democracy while effigies of both President Nicolas Maduro and opposition leaders were paraded for burning.

Though millions headed to beaches and family gatherings for Easter, student demonstrators sought to keep a movement going with religious-themed protests. After a barefoot rally and a "Via Crucis" march in the style of Jesus' walk toward crucifixion, the students gathered Sunday in Caracas for a "Resurrection of Democracy" rally. Anti-Maduro protests since February have left at least 41 people dead from both sides of the nation's political divide and from security forces, officials said. The unrest has been Venezuela's worst in a decade. - Reuters
