Violent Food & Fuel Shortage Riots Grip Venezuela Amid COVID-19 Lockdown

from ZeroHedge:

Despite a six week mandated nationwide coronavirus lockdown, broad protests have once again gripped parts of Venezuela amid crippling food and fuel shortages. Citizens are being asked to stay home, yet can’t get enough food to survive.

New reporting by Bloomberg counts at least 500 protests across 15 states so far this month, which has included multiple killed and scores wounded and arrested in often violent clashes with police, also as protests turn to looting.
