Less than a week after Venezuela marked its 100th day of civil unrest, the country continues to spiral out of control as more violent anti-government acts have become a fixture in the collapsing nation. Just recently, a bomb explosion in the streets of Caracas killed three people during the day of the “roadblock against the dictatorship” — a ten-hour blockade of the nation’s streets staged by the Venezuelan opposition.
Communications Minister Ernesto Villegas said seven national guard soldiers incurred injuries during the explosion, five of whom suffered third-degree burns. Justice Minister Nestor Reverol said the bombing was a cold-blooded effort to ambush the national guard soldiers. On his Twitter account, the minister said: “In the afternoon, ultra-right terrorist groups attempted to kill GNB [Bolivarian National Guard] soldiers on motorbike in Altamira. [The soldiers were surprised by] explosion of an artifact hidden in a backpack and placed by a roadblock.” Still according to Reverol, two national guard soldiers suffered gunshot wounds in El Hatillo and Petare as violent demonstrations continued to sprout near the country’s capital.
