Mexico gives ‘protection’ to Venezuelan opposition lawmaker

Supporters of Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido take part in a rally in support of the Venezuelan National Assembly in Caracas

Also on Tuesday, Amnesty International said Maduro's government may have committed crimes against humanity and called for it to be taken before "an independent and impartial judicial body".

The National Assembly has come under increasing pressure from Maduro since the opposition appealed in vain for a military uprising on April 30.

On Sunday a Venezuelan general called on the country's armed forces to rise up against President Maduro, who has relied on the backing of the military to hold on to power despite an economic collapse.

Earlier, leader of the Venezuelan opposition Juan Guaido in an interview with Washington Post said that the attempt to depose President Nicolas Maduro had failed because of the lack of support among the Venezuelan military and did not rule out agreeing to a USA proposal to launch a foreign military intervention in Venezuela, should it be made.

At least 33 of them were killed by state security forces and six by third parties acting with the approval of the authorities.

"Authorities at the highest level, including Nicolas Maduro, knew about these public and appalling acts and took no measures to either prevent or investigate them", Amnesty said.

Bolsonaro's right-wing government has joined more than 50 other nations in recognising Guaido as the legitimate leader of Venezuela and backed an opposition initiative to deliver USA humanitarian aid to the neighbouring country in February.

Interested in China? Add China as an interest to stay up to date on the latest China news, video, and analysis from ABC News. After major indexes in the U.S. plummeted at least 2% on Monday, Chinese and Japanese stocks followed suit.

It came about after the National Assembly branded Maduro a usurper over his controversial re-election previous year in polls widely regarded as fraudulent.

Mauricio Claver-Carone, the senior director of the White House National Security Council, told a conference in Bogota, Colombia, that Maduro is increasingly paranoid and can no longer trust his inner circle of advisers as those who were once loyal to him have moved their allegiances.

The UN also says that more than 2.7 million people have fled the country since 2015.

"This is a recurring theme".

"When one sees a humanitarian tragedy, one can't be in a passive place and that is why the invitation that all Latin Americans should make is not to ask ourselves when the dictatorship is going to fall, but what we are going to do so that the dictatorship in Venezuela falls and institutional order is restored", stated President Duque.

"Whether it's in a square, in the annex buildings, under a bridge, the Assembly will sit and there will be a session", said congressman Luis Stefanelli.
