Here's a collection of some of the best photos from around the world shot in the last 24 hours

An opposition supporter shouts at a riot police officer during a protest against President Nicolas Maduro's government in Caracas.

Venezuela ordered the expulsion of three U.S. diplomats on Monday on charges of recruiting university students to lead demonstrations that have left three dead in the OPEC nation's most serious violence since President Nicolas Maduro's election in April.

Munduruku Indian warriors stand guard over an illegal gold miner who was detained by a group of warriors searching out illegal gold mines and miners in their territory near the Caburua river, a tributary of the Tapajos and Amazon rivers in western Para state.

The Munduruku tribe has seen their land encroached on by wildcat miners in search of gold, and the tribe's leaders travelled to the capital Brasilia last year to demand the federal government remove non-indigenous miners from their territory.

Rather than wait for a court decision to start the process -- which could take years -- the Munduruku decided to take matters into their own hands and expel the wildcat miners.

Soldiers stand guard at the temporary office of Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra during a protest in Bangkok.

Hundreds of unpaid Thai rice farmers swarmed around the office on Monday, threatening to storm the building if the beleaguered premier did not come out and speak to them.

The escalation of the protest by farmers, who have not been paid for crops sold to the government under a state rice-buying scheme that helped sweep Yingluck's Puea Thai Party to power, came as thousands of demonstrators seeking to unseat the prime minister surrounded the government's headquarters.

A labourer works at a factory which makes fertiliser ingredients out of scrap leather in Kolkata.

Workers in the factory extract wet blue leather and recover a solid collagenic material containing high nitrogen levels, which can be used for the production of nitrogenous fertiliser.

India’s import of nitrogenous fertiliser “urea” has been rising as farmers are demanding more to boost yields of staples such as rice and wheat.

A woman sits on a bench on a flooded Thames riverside path in Staines, southern England.

Engulfing towns and countryside, floods have triggered the biggest rescue operation in Britain since World War II. Tens of thousands have been left without power, others evacuated from their homes after the wettest January on record pushed river banks to breaking point.

There is now concern that the unrelenting bad weather could be severe enough to dent Britain's economic recovery.
