Anti-government protesters used a makeshift slingshot to fire projectiles at police during demonstrations in the eastern Caracas district of Las Mercedes on Friday.

Flammable projectiles were also hurled at police who had formed up behind riot shields atop a bridge across a highway.

Slingshots were used by anti-government protesters during clashes with police in Kiev throughout January and February.
