People attend a march during a protest against the government of President Nicolas Maduro in San Cristobal, capital of the western border state of Tachira, Venezuela, on February 22, 2014. Most of the stores were closed for fear of unrest in San Cristobal. The death toll from escalating anti-government protests in Venezuela jumped to eight on Friday, as President Nicolas Maduro’s leftist administration threatened to cut off fuel to areas «under fascist siege.» AFP PHOTO / LUIS ROBAYO
