Human torch attack: Horror as protesters set FIRE to a man accused of stealing

This is the horror moment protesters in Venezuela at the weekend set fire to a man during a rally against the country’s leader. Witnesses to the incident including a Reuters photographer, said the crowd had accused the man of stealing during the demonstration which called on President Nicolas Maduro to call an early election. More than 200,000 people took to the streets with images from the demo showing the man running around after being set on fire. It appears he attempted to rip off his burning clothes to try and put out the fire and was later pictured sitting down and surrounded by protesters trying to keep others away.
