VENEZUELA / PROTESTS
++Running Story – 12 - 18 August 2017++ The international community continues to put pressure on President Nicolas Maduro, with the US slapping sanctions on members of the newly convened constitutional assembly as anti-government protests persist. Promised economic sanctions have yet to materialize amid an outcry by the US oil industry that a potential ban on heavy crude imports from Venezuela will hurt US jobs and drive up the cost of gas.
