A rollercoaster week for Venezuela
A tense week in Venezuela comes to a close, with no change in the country's political standoff.

Host Carol Hills speaks with Gustavo Mendoza in Caracas. He was at the anti-government protests in Caracas earlier this week. He describes the week as a "rollercoaster of emotions."
