Three other people were killed on Monday in the latest day of nationwide protests by opponents demanding elections to remove Maduro from office.

Protesters in Venezuela plan a high-risk march against President Nicolas Maduro Wednesday, sparking fears of fresh violence after demonstrations that have left 26 dead in the crisis-wracked country.

Jhonny Colmenarez, an official for Maduro's ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela, or PSUV, said Orlando Johan Jhosep Medina was fatally shot in the head at midnight on Monday in the city of El Tocuyo in the Lara state.

Most demonstrators rallied peacefully but some masked protesters threw stones and clashed with police who fired tear gas and rubber bullets.

Maduro narrowly won election in 2013 against opposition leader Henrique Capriles, but the economic crisis has battered his public approval ratings since then.

Maduro put the figure at 29 deaths in a speech Tuesday evening, without giving details.

Maduro, the heir of the leftist "Bolivarian revolution" launched by the late Hugo Chavez in 1999, says the shortages and the protests are part of a US-backed plot to topple him.

Massive anti-government rallies have been held in Venezuela in recent weeks since Venezuela's Supreme Court stripped the opposition-controlled parliament of its powers.

The court partly backtracked after an global outcry. He said that four fatalities were adolescents and 437 people had also been injured.

That includes 14 arrested journalists, their union said Tuesday, condemning the figure as "alarming". Clashes have been reported across the country as hundreds of thousands take to the streets in the most sustained protests since 2014.

Maduro says his foes are seeking a violent coup, with US connivance, like a short-lived 2002 putsch against Chavez. "Whether they are with the government or the opposition".

Analysts say street protests are now one of the few levers the opposition has for change.
