CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuelan opposition legislators on Sunday re-elected Juan Guaido as head of the country’s congress in a session held outside the country’s legislative palace.

Hours earlier, the ruling Socialist Party installed a rival lawmaker as congress chief after troops blocked a group of opposition legislators from joining.
