Pot-banging protest against Jimmy Carter in Caracas
A group of people opposed to President Hugo Chávez Wednesday staged a pot-banging protest against former U.S. President Jimmy Carter, who was at a restaurant in Caracas, sources confirmed to news agency EFE.
The sources, close to the Carter Center and speaking on condition of anonymity, explained that another group of clients at the restaurant applauded the former U.S. president in response to the protesters.
Carter was forced to leave the Limoncello restaurant, in east Caracas El Rosal area, "under the protection of his bodyguards."
The Venezuelan opposition has harshly criticized both the Organization of American States and the Carter Center after they certified President Chávez' win in last Sunday recall vote.
