Argentines from leftist civil society marched towards the US Embassy in Buenos Aires on Wednesday, protesting Washington's policy on Venezuela. 

Hundreds marched in the capital chanting anti-American messages and burning a US flag. The march comes after a deadly showdown at Venezuela's border to bring in international aid to the country amidst crippling food and medical shortages.

Maduro denies his oil-rich nation has need for humanitarian aid and accuses Guaido of being a coup-mongering puppet for Trump.

The United States was among the first countries to recognize opposition Guaido as Venezuela's legitimate leader after he swore himself in as president last month, arguing Maduro's May 2018 re-election was a sham.

Earlier this week, the United States targeted Venezuela's government with new sanctions and called on allies to freeze the assets of state-owned oil company PDVSA.
