CARACAS, Venezuela -- Massive demonstrations by opponents and supporters of President Nicolas Maduro were underway Saturday in central Caracas as the official death toll rose to eight on the 10th day of civil unrest roiling Venezuela.

Lopez and other opposition leaders say armed pro-government vigilantes have been responsible for the deaths.
