Venezuelan National Assembly President Juan Guaidó urged supporters to take to the country's streets again Wednesday for the "largest march" and called on more security forces to switched sides, as street clashes reportedly turned fatal.

Details: The nonprofit Venezuelan Observatory of Social Conflict told The Washington Post 1 man died and dozens more were injured by tear gas, live ammunition and rubber bullets. Bolivarian Intelligence Service head Manuel Ricardo Cristopher Figuera said he's broken ranks with President Nicolás Maduro, AP reports. Maduro insisted Guaidó's supporters were a "small group" whose plan to oust him had failed.

The big picture: The Venezuelan people's suffering is intensifying amid crippling sanctions while the world awaits a decisive moment in the Maduro-Guaidó standoff, per Axios' Dave Lawler. Here, Axios takes a look at some of the most powerful moments from Tuesday's events, captured by on-the-scene photographers.
