Sixty-five people killed in Venezuela in four days
Over the weekend only, 40 dead bodies were taken to the Caracas morgue
A police officer remarked that February is likely to become a very violent month considering the number of dead bodies (16) taken to the morgue on a daily basis.
In January 2013, the morgue received a total of 419 bodies, 80% of which had gunshot wounds, a source from the Scientific, Criminal and Forensic Investigation Agency (Cicpc) said off the record.
Meanwhile, the relatives of the victims call for justice and pray to God.

A simple reason: there is oil galore, would suffice to explain Guyana's actions. Another explanation lies in the little or none efforts made by the Venezuelan government to thwart the move by the Guyanese. This is certainly not a new problem, but a problem only recently highlighted because oil is involved. But what other resources does the disputed area hold? For most of us it is a section on the map with black and white stripes on it, a depiction of something distant, alien, a nothingness not worth paying much attention to in geography classes back in elementary school.
