One killed in latest Venezuelan protests

A man was killed in a protest in the Venezuelan capital on Thursday night, marking the ninth death in a wave of violent demonstrations against President Nicolas Maduro's government.
  
Melvin Guaitan died of a bullet wound in the slum of Petare.
   
Local media reported looting and street clashes with security forces in poor areas of Caracas late Thursday night into Friday morning.
   
Opposition leaders have promised to keep up their protests, demanding that Mr. Maduro's government call regional elections that have been delayed since last year.
    
They also want almost 100 jailed opposition activists to be freed.
