Venezuela Says Street Protests Have Caused $10 Billion In Damage

Venezuela's president said on Friday that street protests for the past month have caused at least $10 billion in damage, accusing hardline foes of carrying out terrorist acts to sabotage public assets.President Nicolas Maduro did not say how the government arrived at that figure from the clashes between demonstrators barricading roads, pro-government radicals and security forces that have killed at least 31 people.Maduro said in a televised address, "The minority who want a coup have done so much damage to the country ... they burnt a public university where hundreds of young people studied. This isn't protest. It's vandalism. It's terrorism."The protesters are demanding Maduro resign, while he says "fascists" want a coup like the one 12 years ago that briefly ousted his predecessor, the late Hugo Chavez.
