Pictures of the Year: Venezuela crisis
A protestor holds a national flag while standing in front of a fire burning at the entrance of a building housing the magistracy of the Supreme Court of Justice and a bank branch, during a rally against Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro, in Caracas, Venezuela, June 12, 2017. Protesters angry at the pro-government Supreme Court's ruling attacked a branch of the court with petrol bombs. Carlos Garcia Rawlins: "As had happened before, security forces from inside the building repelled the attack, but this time the clashes were more intense. The demonstrators looted and burned a bank branch in the same building, which was later engulfed in smoke and flames. By the end of the day, several protesters were injured and detained."
