Opposition leaders in Venezuela have issued a rallying call for millions of protesters to take to the streets - as polls open in a controversial vote.
They are boycotting the "Constituency Assembly" election, claiming President Nicolas Maduro will use its result to crush dissenters and tighten his grip on power.
Polling stations are to open at 7am local time (12pm BST) and are expected to close 11 hours later.
If successful, President Maduro will essentially govern a one-party state, controlling the powerful 545-member body charged with re-writing the Venezuelan constitution.
