Protesters set a ‘thief’ ablaze in Venezuela as violent demonstrations against Maduro continue

An alleged ‘thief’ was set on fire and a demonstrator shot dead as 200,000 people marched across the country against the deeply unpopular government in Venezuela.

Shocking photos show a man among protesters ripping off his clothes in agony after he was set ablaze for reportedly stealing during the march, that attracted close to 160,000, in capital Caracas on Saturday.

Despite being consumed in flames the man survived the assault and was later pictured sitting down, surrounded by protesters trying to keep others away.
