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.

At first she agreed that I use her real name, that she had no problems with that at all. After all, living with HIV had driven her to help others – as a workshop facilitator giving talks and conducting seminars, or as a volunteer for local AIDS Service Organizations like Acción Solidaria (Solidary Action) and Mujeres Unidas por la Salud (Women United for Health, or Musa), a support group network for HIV-positive women. But when we were well into the interview, the realization that she might lose her private health insurance coverage made her change her mind.
