Venezuela opposition to hold symbolic referendum
Venezuela’s opposition is expected to hold an unofficial referendum amid protests and unrest.
The vote is seen as a bid to prevent President Nicolas Maduro from rewriting the constitution.
Food shortages, inflation and a crashing currency have seen hundreds of thousands of people protest against the president in recent months.
