Venezuela has expelled Panama's ambassador and three other diplomats amid growing tensions over opposition protests.




The officials were given 48 hours to leave the country.



It comes a day after Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro broke diplomatic relations and froze economic ties with Panama.



At least 20 people have died in anti-government protests in Venezuela in the last month.



Maduro has accused Panama of conspiring to bring down his government.
