Tensions between protesters and police in two parts of the world intensified overnight.
U.S. cable news networks kept cameras trained on Kiev, Ukraine as a fresh round of violence has left dozens dead, despite a ceasefire called hours earlier. Holly Williams is reporting from Kiev for CBS News, Richard Engel is there for NBC News, Nick Paton Walsh for CNN.
And in Venezuela, social and economic problems have fired up protesters for days in several cities. On Wednesday student and beauty queen Genesis Carmona died after being shot in the head at a protest in Valencia.
Venezuelan-born Fusion anchor Mariana Atencio, has been reporting from the country all week on the growing protests. Wednesday she tweeted a picture of her cameraman who was hit by the plastic bullets being fired by national police.
