In violent Venezuela, police killings surge to almost one a day

CARACAS (Reuters) - After finishing a routine overnight shift, Venezuelan policeman Edgar Perez was walking home from the bus stop when two armed men pulled up on a motorbike. Perez, 41, had time to draw his gun and injure one of the attackers in the shootout near his modest home in the town of Ocumare del Tuy outside Caracas, but the other shot him in the head and took his weapon. The officer died shortly afterwards in a nearby clinic, leaving a widow and three children. #United States #India #China #Japan #Brazil #Technology #France #Arabic #Venezuela

Police rounded up 16 people for protesting in front of stores over the weekend, according to the opposition MUD coalition, which said four of them were released shortly after.

Venezuela indicts opposition leader Machado, alleging plot to kill Maduro

CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuela has indicted hardline opposition leader Maria Corina Machado on charges that she took part in an alleged plot to kill President Nicolas Maduro, the state prosecutor's office said on Wednesday. Machado, who was at the forefront of major street protests against Maduro's socialist government earlier this year, has dismissed the accusations as a charade meant to silence her and distract Venezuelans from a growing economic crisis. If found guilty, the former legislator could be sentenced to between 8 and 16 years in jail #Brazil #France #Middle East #Russia #Venezuela #Government #markets #United Kingdom #Latin America #opinion

Venezuela is creating a Chavez cult Here's why it might backfire

Chavezism - if you want to call it that - had its devotees and its detractors, and always will. The question is whether that sets the country up for ongoing and intractable division. #HowThisWorks #Venezuela #Hugo Chvez #Socialism #Nicolas Maduro
