 “Cinco personas han sido heridas de bala en incidentes separados cercanos a las protestas en circunstancias poco claras. Una de las víctimas se dice que fue herida por un opositor desde un rascacielos, aunque la afiliación política del victimario aún no se ha confirmado”, añadió la periodista. “Nueve manifestantes opositores parecen haber muerto como resultado de sus propias acciones (al menos nueve se electrocutaron cuando saqueaban una panadería)”.

La crisis en Venezuela es grave y complicada, lo cual hace la enfermiza y excluyente obsesión con ese país del secretario general de la OEA, Luis Almagro, no solo extraña y contraproducente, sino totalmente inaceptable.

[OP-ED]: Truth has become useless in Venezuela

“Five people have been shot in separate incidents near protests but under unclear circumstances. One of these victims was shot by an alleged opposition supporter from a high-rise building, although the perpetrator’s political affiliation is yet to be confirmed,” Bothroyd Rojas added. “Nine protesters appear to have died as a result of their own actions (at least nine were electrocuted in the recent looting of a bakery).”

The crisis in Venezuela is grave and complicated, which makes the OAS’ Secretary General Luis Almagro’s consuming obsession with Venezuela not only strange and counterproductive, but totally inadmissible.

While president-elect, Donald Trump, wants to cancel an order to build a new model of the Air Force One, arguing that it would cost more than $4,000 milion, a small Latin-American country like Uruguay is debating if it really needs a presidential plane:  

For the last two years, Uruguay’s President Tabaré Vázquez has been trying to acquire a presidential plane to travel abroad, but the Audit Court has recently rejected the purchase process because only one company submitted a bid.
