CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Two anti-government protesters have died in accidents in the restive western region of Venezuela.

Officials in the industrial city of Maracaibo say 33 year-old Roberto Annese was killed Saturday near a barricade when his homemade weapon malfunctioned.

In San Cristobal, to the south, 44-year-old Franklin Romero Moncada was electrocuted while attempting to build a barricade. Another man and a teenager were hurt in the same accident. The group was knocking down a fence.

Opponents of the socialist administration have been erecting obstacles in streets around the country for seven weeks. More than 30 people have died as protesters have clashed with police and pro-government militias.
