UN EXPRESSES CONCERN OVER VENEZUELA CRISIS

0

CARACAS: The United Nations office in Venezuela expressed deep concern on Saturday (Sunday in Manila) over the “high human cost” of anti-government protests which have left 39 people dead during two months of unrest. Since early February students backed by the opposition have staged near-daily protests against leftist President Nicolas Maduro over soaring crime, high inflation and shortages of essential goods. A UN statement said people had the right to protest peacefully and rejected “any violent act, destruction of public and private property and obstruction to the free movement of citizens” by either side.
