Supporters of President Nicolas Maduro marched through the streets of Caracas Friday in protest of an upcoming gathering of former Latin American leaders planned for this weekend. Mexican Felipe Calderon, Chilean Sebastian Pinera and Colombian Andres Pastrana are expected to attend a forum organized by the Venezuelan opposition.

A shortage of commodities in Venezuela has forced many residents to stand in long lines for items like toilet paper and washing detergent.
