Almeno 26 cittadini venezuelani sono stati feriti durante le proteste vicino all’Università di Carabobo, nel nord del Paese. Una serie di proteste ha colpito lo Stato dell’America Latina negli ultimi giorni dopo che la Corte Suprema ha tentato di assumere le funzioni dell’Assemblea Nazionale, controllata dall’opposizione. Nonostante il fatto che la sentenza del tribunale è stata annullata, le tensioni tra i legislatori e il governo rimangono.

At least 26 Venezuelan citizens were injured in protests near the University of Carabobo in the country’s north, which are part of the rallies opposing the government policy, media reported Thursday, citing the university’s officials. A series of protests hit the Latin American state in recent days after Venezuela’s Supreme Court attempted to take on the functions of the country’s National Assembly controlled by opposition. Despite the fact that the court’s ruling has been canceled the tensions between the legislators and the government remain. According to the Venezuelan Universal news portal, David Rutman, the dean of the university’s law faculty, said that police had detained at least four students at the territory of the university during the protests. The news portal added that Jessy Divo, the university’s president, had voiced protest against the violation of the university’s rights, while Francisco Ameliach, the governor of Carabobo, said that he would launch an investigation into the activities of the law enforcement officers. Yet another rally protesting against the government of the country’s President Nicolas Maduro is expected to take place later on Thursday in Caracas. Against the backdrop of the rally, authorities have already blocked access to the city to prevent people from other regions from coming to the country’s capital.
