Unofficially, 54 people were killed after violent riots erupted during an inspection at the Uribana jail, in western Lara state, which led to clashes between military troops and inmutes.

The number of injured was 88. The armed forces took control of the major hospital in the area in order to monitor access and security of inmates admitted to hospital.

Antonio María Pineda Hospital director Ruy Medina told AFP, "At 8:00 pm (Friday) we had a tentative figure of 90 injured, most of them by gunfire, with a truly alarming figure of at least 50 dead. "

People killed at a Lara state jail include a national guard, two prison bosses, known as "prans," and two evangelical pastors. The death toll is likely to increase given the violent events.

No inspection had been conducted in Uribana prison since 2009.

The rock of discord

A shipment of over 30,000 tons of phosphate arrived at Puerto Cabello port in late July on board the Shi Long Ling, a Chinese-flagged vessel that began its long journey in northern Africa. The cargo boat docked on July 26 after traveling more than 3,200 nautical miles. Undoubtedly, this would just be considered one in many cargo ships crisscrossing the oceans if it were not for the fact that Venezuela has denounced Western Sahara occupation by Morocco and yet purchases the territory's natural resource products from the occupying power.
