Gunmen have opened fire on students returning from a protest in  Caracas 
against Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez's planned reforms.  
Several people have been reported injured during the clashes, including at  
least two by gunfire.  
The students were protesting against plans to remove presidential term  
limits, the subject of a referendum.  
Thousands had marched peacefully to the Supreme Court and filed a demand for  
the vote to be suspended.  
Unidentified gunmen opened fire on the students as they returned from the  
march, prompting scenes of chaos as students fled.
