UN agency: Venezuela prison violence 'alarming'

Published: 01.30.13, 12:29 / Israel News

Venezuela's government is facing mounting criticism from activists and the UN human rights office for its handling of the country's overcrowded and violent prisons following a clash between inmates and troops that left at least 58 dead.


Rupert Colville, a spokesman for the office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, expressed concern on Tuesday about "an alarming pattern of violence in Venezuelan prisons, which is a direct consequence of poor conditions." (AP)
