Demonstrators took to the streets after a pre-dawn raid by security forces that broke up four camps maintained by student protesters and arrested more than 200 people. The tent cities were installed more than a month ago in front of the offices of the United Nations and in better-off neighborhoods in the capital to protest against President Nicolas Maduro's socialist government.
