Venezuela crisis: UN says security forces killed hundreds

In a recent UN report dismissed by the Venezuelan government as lies, the UN accuses Venezuelan security forces of carrying out hundreds of killings under the pretense of fighting crime. Accountability and the rule of law in the country has been described as “virtually absent” by the UN human rights chief. While UN investigators have not been allowed into the country, the findings are based on internet interviews with victims and witnesses. The country continues to reel from its ongoing political and economic crisis, with protests, hyperinflation, and food shortages dominating international news coverage.
