, Index number: AMR 53/008/2014

Two more fatalities have occurred in Venezuela as violent clashes during protests continue. The death toll has risen to 23 and the number of injured continues to escalate. It is imperative that the government sends a clear and unequivocal message that human rights must be respected and violence will not be tolerated. Opposition authorities must also urge their supporters not to engage in human rights abuses.
