Due uomini sono stati uccisi durante le proteste contro il governo venezuelano nello stato occidentale di Tachira vicino al confine colombiano: lo hanno riferito i media. Nelle proteste di ieri, circa 60 persone sono state arrestate. Un 17enne e un 33enne sono rimasti uccisi, portando a oltre 40 il bilancio totale delle vittime rimaste uccise durante le proteste in corso dal 4 aprile in Venezuela.

Two men were killed during protests against Venezuelan government in the country’s western state of Tachira near the Colombian border, media reported Tuesday. On Monday, nationwide protests organized by the opposition took place in Venezuela, and nearly 60 people were detained as the result. According to the Nacional media outlet, a 17-year-old male died from a gunshot wound, while a 33-year-old male was fatally injured by a teargas grenade. Over 40 people have been killed during protests that have been sweeping across Venezuela since April 4. The demonstrations were sparked by the top court’s decision to curb the powers of the National Assembly, which is controlled by the opposition. Despite the almost immediate reversal of the controversial decision, supporters of the opposition took to the streets, demanding the resignation of the judges and a snap election.
