MADURO SEEKS END TO VENEZUELA PROTESTS

0

CARACAS: Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and opposition coalition representatives agreed on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila) to hold talks on ending two months of anti-government protests that have left 39 people dead in their oil-rich nation. The talks, tentatively scheduled to begin Thursday, will be overseen by the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR), a regional South American grouping, and the Vatican. Since early February, 39 people have died in clashes between security forces and protesters angered by soaring crime, high inflation and shortages of such basic goods as toilet paper, which they blame on the socialist government led by Maduro.
