Venezuela bus strike causes traffic chaos in Caracas

Venezuelan bus drivers protesting their country's economic crisis parked their buses in the street on Wednesday, causing traffic chaos in Caracas and embarrassing President Nicolas Maduro, a former colleague.

Hundreds of drivers joined the strike, demanding better pay, more security against violent crime and spare parts for their buses.

Tires, car batteries and motor oil are on a long list of goods that have disappeared in the shortage-racked country.

The protest paralyzed half the bus fleet in the city of three million people, the drivers said.
