Anti-government protests claim another life in Venezuela


Venezuela once had a Jewish community that numbered about 25,000 people, but leaders say more than half have fled amid economic and political insecurity.

On May 1, President Nicolas Maduro called for a new Constitution as a way to overcome the political crisis, and pushed for forming a constituent assembly to draft the document.

The high court is dominated by loyalists of President Nicolas Maduro. "Because right now what's happening is really a disgrace to humanity", Trump said after meeting at the White House with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos.

US President Donald Trump has called the situation in Venezuela "a mess" and his aides have threatened tougher measures against Caracas.

While the US has so far avoided wide-ranging sanctions on the South American country or its economy, it has targeted individuals for drug trafficking and human rights violations stemming from anti-government protests in 2014.

Asimismo, aseguró que ambos países seguirán trabajando para "traer paz y prosperidad" al hemisferio occidental. Desde el punto de vista humanitario, no habíamos visto nada así en mucho tiempo", afirmó.

Even though the government was sending 2,000 troops to Tachira state, on the border with Colombia, clashes and looting raged overnight, witnesses said.

Maduro's aides acc us e them of seeking a violent coup.

God0y Calderon said if Maduro wasn't managing the protests well it could have resulted in a full blown civil war in Venezuela.

With the latest sanctions, the United States government said the court members were being targeted because they had "usurped the authority of Venezuela's democratically elected legislature".

"Venezuela is a mess", Trump said on Thursday.

Despite its vast oil reserves, Venezuela is suffering chronic shortages of food, medicine and other basic supplies.

Field conditions are mixed across the heart of the Corn Belt. "There shouldn't be that much corn to be planted by the weekend". The funds' new net position in soybeans stands at 34,335 contracts on the short side, compared with 47,667 in the week prior.

The opposition has accused the government of violently repressing protests by Venezuelans demanding early elections to remove Maduro from power.

The number of people killed in seven weeks of opposition violence is not clear, with most putting it in the low forties - rivalling the 43 deaths in 2014's year-long "Guarimba" regime-change riots.

Britain's U.N. Ambassador Matthew Rycroft warned that if things go wrong, Venezuela could "descend into conflict" and threaten global peace and security.

"It is not tolerable that these individuals, after they destroyed the country, and are responsible for the chaos that Venezuela is experiencing, seek to exonerate themselves", he said.

Moreno, while not directly involved in those decisions, has defended them and from the bench also upheld a almost 14-year sentence against opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez a day after Trump called for his release at a White House meeting with his wife. The Organization of Americas States will hold an emergency ministerial meeting on May 31 to address the crisis.

Rubio said he hopes Trump will impose further sanctions in the future.
