Protesters Storm National Assembly, Beat Up Lawmakers In Venezuela (Photos)

Government supporters burst into Venezuela's opposition-controlled congress on Wednesday attacked the Lawmakers in the latest flare-up of violence during a political crisis.

Witnesses said, the protesters were supporting Maduro against opposition demands for elections to remove him from office.

Hours afterwards by late afternoon, a crowd of roughly 100 people was still besieging the building, trapping people inside, witnesses said.
Several dozen people ran past the gates with pipes, sticks and stones and went on the attack.
They injured at many opposition lawmakers who stumbled bloodied and dazed around the assembly's corridors, witnesses said.

Venezuela's opposition is demanding general elections to end socialist rule and solutions to the OPEC nation's brutal economic crisis.

The government says its foes are seeking a violent coup with U.S. support.
