UN decries Venezuela crackdown; sanctions may worsen crisis

UN human rights chief Michelle Bachelet said on Wednesday that Venezuelan security forces have quashed peaceful protests with excessive use of force, killings and torture. Bachelet said she had information that 37 people had been executed in January in Caracas in illegal house raids. However, Bachelet warned that the latest US ’may contribute to aggravating the economic crisis’.
