Venezuelan soldiers shot at a group of civilians who were trying to keep open the southern border with Brazil for deliveries of humanitarian aid.
Multiple injuries were reported and one fatality. According to the Washington Post, “at 6:30 a.m. on Friday, a military convoy approached a checkpoint set up by an indigenous community in the southern village of Kumarakapai, that rests on the main artery linking Venezuela to Brazil. When the volunteers sought to block the military vehicles by standing in front of them, soldiers began firing assault rifles, wounding at least 12 people, four of them seriously. One woman, Zorayda Rodriguez, 42, was killed.”
