Venezuela's exile community in the US protested the re-election of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro outside the Miami consulate on Thursday.

Activist Carmen Gimenez said demonstrators view Maduro as an "illegitimate president."

"We are asking to the world to expel ambassadors and consuls that represent Venezuela. We want countries in Europe or the Americas to take these criminals out of their countries," she said.

The US, Canada and a dozen of Latin American countries have said they would not recognise Maduro's presidency.
