US law enforcement has started the process of trying to remove protesters from the Venezuelan Embassy in Washington, a State Department official said.

The eviction process on Monday came after a group of American anti-war activists began moving into the embassy last month.

The decision was made on a request of envoys of Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido, whom US President Donald Trump's government recognises as the legitimate leader of Venezuela.

"The US does not recognise the authority of the former (Nicolas) Maduro regime or any of its former representatives, to allow any individuals to lawfully enter, remain on this property, or take any other action with respect to this property," said the evacuation order.

Guaido's envoys in Washington "have requested and directed anyone who is present on this property to depart from it immediately, and to not return without these ambassadors' express authorisation".
