A Venezuelan opposition leader, Leopoldo Lopez, has handed himself over to the National Guard after making a speech to thousands of his supporters.

Lopez was wanted on charges of inciting violence during recent street protests which left at least four dead.

Speaking before thousands of his supporters wearing red, President Nicolas Maduro said Lopez would be brought to Justice.

Meanwhile Lopez said he hoped his arrest would wake up the country to its injustices.

Several thousands of pro and anti-government supporters have taken part in tense rival rallies in the capital, Caracas.
