A total of 120 violent deaths in Caracas in carnival
A man was beaten and set in fire at his store
One of the victims was identified as Juan Basilio López (45), who died on Tuesday after he was heavily beaten and set in fire. His relatives informed that the man resisted robbery at his store and was heavily beaten.
Relatives of the victims appeared at the National Coordination of Forensic Sciences in Caracas to withdraw the bodies.
That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
