Venezuela's opposition-led legislature on Tuesday approved an amnesty bill for political prisoners, setting up an epic political clash with socialist President Nicolas Maduro, who opposes the move.

National Assembly speaker Henry Ramos Allup said the measure was approved after a second round of debate, sparking opposition lawmaker chants of "Freedom!" even as the president's party's minority lawmakers voiced disgust.
