Venezuela's boiling point: Push to recall President Maduro (part 2)

Drought, collapsing crude oil prices and a bitter political divide. That's the toxic mix that's triggered full-blown riots in Venezuela. The heyday of Hugo Chavez is long gone as his successor fights off moves to chase him from office by a new right-wing majority. The rationing now extends to electricity and the president has declared a two-day work week for civil servants, all this while the country runs short of paper to print money. Can Maduro hang on any more than his Brazilian counterpart?

Produced by Charles WENTE, François WIBAUX and Christopher DAVIS.
