Seven students from Universidad Santa María (USM), a private university in the state of Anzoátegui (northeastern Venezuela), were injured after the police broke up a demonstration outside the campus.

Roger Millán, president of the University Students' Council at the USM, said that the students were virtually "kidnapped" because the police have banned both people and cars from entering or leaving the USM campus.

The injured students are still in the campus and their health condition is unknown. The mayor of Lecherías, Gustavo Marcano, sent a civil protection team to look after the injured, but they have not been able to enter the university.

The demonstration began at 8:00 a. m. (Venezuela's time). The students were demonstrating against the shutdown of private TV station RCTV Internacional on Saturday night.
