Venezuela has endured four days of blackouts. This is what it looks like there  1 Week ago

Source:   USA Today  

Venezuela is suffering from political unrest, as the Trump administration and a slate of other nations look to oust socialist President Nicolas Maduro.

Venezuela also is struggling with its electrical grid, with residents suffering through four days of blackouts.

On national television Monday, Maduro said the country has made progress in restoring power, but did not appear to specify when it would fully return.

Meanwhile, the lack of power has forced citizens to visit a polluted river in Caracas to fill bottles of water, while long lines formed at gas stations. The Guardian reports opposition leaders in the country say at least 21 people have died because of the blackouts. The oil industry has also been hit hard by the lack of power.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, citing the country's deteriorating situation, said in a tweet Monday night that the United States is withdrawing its few remaining diplomats by the end of the week. The move came after another day of chaos as power outages continued to leave Venezuelans with little power, water and communications.

Here are recent images from Venezuela that show what life is like for the country's residents right now.
