Applause for Venezuela's opposition candidate Henrique Capriles. He's stepping up his campaign ahead of Sunday's snap elections, triggered by the death of former leader Hugo Chavez. Capriles, a 40-year-old governor, says he is here to for the people and to make a stand against insular politics. Acting President Nicolas Maduro drummed up support at his own rally with a promise to hike Venezuela's minimum wage by about 40 percent if he's elected.
