CARACAS (Reuters) - Tens of thousands of protesters against President Nicolas Maduro's government blocked Caracas streets on Tuesday after the arrest of hardline opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez.

Opposition supporters crowded around a military vehicle taking Lopez into custody, while demonstrators also took to streets in other parts of the Venezuelan capital, paralyzing traffic, Reuters reporters around the city said.
