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.

"Cocoa is to Venezuelans what wine is to the French," says Alejandro Prosperi, head of the Venezuelan Chamber of Cocoa, using this simile to express the paramount importance or the cocoa industry for the country. Often times heralded as "the best cocoa in the world," a passion for quality dating back to the sixteenth century has made Venezuelan cocoa growers to enjoy high prestige at international level and their product to be among the most sought-after in the world.
