Sixty-five people were murdered in the first four days of February in Caracas, including 40 people that were killed during the weekend. 

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.

Whose victim am I?

They are marching in step to the same tune. There is a coordinated effort to position the idea. The Twitter hashtag  #YoSoyVictimaDeLaGuarimba (I'm a victim of "guarimbas", or protest barricades) can be read on all pro-government Twitter accounts, including those of the ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), the National Assembly's Press Office, the state-run food distribution network PDVAL, state airline Conviasa, the Venezuelan embassies in foreign countries, radio stations and the huge media network responsive to the Government's interests and messages.
