Venezuela blackout leaves commuters scrambling, silences president

CARACAS (Reuters) - A blackout cut power to much of Venezuela on Friday, snarling traffic in the capital Caracas and other major cities as authorities scrambled to restore electricity after the outage, which twice interrupted a presidential broadcast. Pedestrians streamed into the streets of Caracas as the blackout shuttered the underground metro trains and left frustrated drivers honking in the chaos without stoplights. #facebook #United States #India #Brazil #Technology #France #Arabic #Venezuela #Italy #Argentina #United Kingdom #Mexico

Venezuela violated rights of protesters - rights group

CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuela has violated the rights of opposition protesters through beatings, illegal detentions and failure to follow due process, Human Rights Watch said in a report released on Monday. The report, entitled "Punished for Protesting," said troops used excessive force against peaceful protesters, and that state prosecutors and judges tolerated or participated in the abuses. The report was based on research in March on 45 cases of "serious human rights violations." The group interviewed more than 90 people, including victims and their families, and more than a dozen lawyers who provided legal counsel #facebook #Business #Japan #Brazil #Technology #France #Middle East #Venezuela #markets #Argentina #Latin America #opinion

Venezuela's Maduro meets opposition as death toll from protests hits 41

CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro cautioned opposition leaders to keep their expectations modest on Thursday as he hosted them for mediated talks intended to stem two months of deadly political unrest. Maduro has held similar meetings previously but this was the first to include Henrique Capriles, who Maduro narrowly beat in last year's presidential election, and the first to be brokered by foreign ministers from the Unasur bloc of South American governments #facebook #India #Japan #Arabic #Middle East #Russia #Venezuela #markets #Argentina #Latin America #Mexico #opinion
