The US State Department Thursday issued a travel warning for Venezuela, urging US citizens to avoid the danger posed by ongoing demonstrations there over the shutdown of an opposition TV station.

"The government is organizing counter-demonstrations. Riot police are out in force ... police in Caracas used tear gas, water cannons, and plastic pellets to disperse crowds ... There are reports of at least one fatality," it added.

US authorities advised US citizens to "consider the risks of travel to Venezuela," and urges those already in Venezuela "to exercise caution."

"American citizens are reminded that even demonstrations intended to be peaceful may turn violent," the statement said.
