(Reuters) - A Venezuelan opposition leader wanted by police over deadly street protests said on Sunday he would hand himself in next week after his supporters march in Caracas.
Authorities accuse Leopoldo Lopez of murder and terrorism in connection with violence around four days of sporadic anti-government demonstrations that have left three people dead and both sides blaming each other for the bloodshed.
"I will be there showing my face. I have nothing to fear," Lopez said in a brief video posted online. "If there is any illegal decision to jail me, then I will accept that decision and that infamous persecution by the state."
