New death in Venezuela puts toll at level of 2014 unrest

An opposition supporter participates in a candlelight rally against President Nicolas Maduro with a painting on the face that reads "freedom" and with a sentence on his forehead and glasses that reads "is forbidden to forget".

The capital's Child and Adolescent Foundation president Anahi Arizmendi has also attacked the opposition's recruitment of children for vandalism.

According to a 2007 USA strategic document leaked by former CIA-whistleblower Edward Snowden in 2013, Venezuela was seen as the main adversary of the United States in the Western Hemisphere.

"The worldwide community needs to say "respect the human rights of your people" or this is going to go in the direction we've seen so many others go", Haley said.

The UN Security Council was due to discuss the unrest in Venezuela yesterday, at the request of the United States.

The officials say the list of blacklisted officials is likely to include members of Venezuela's Supreme Court, which issued a controversial late March ruling stripping congress of its last powers. She pointed to medicine being unavailable, hospitals lacking supplies and people having difficulty finding food.

"We will never be a threat against the peace and security in worldwide or the regional level", he insisted. But sanctions so far have stopped short of hitting the oil sector in Venezuela, which is a major USA oil supplier. Venezuela officially notified the OAS on April 28 that it intends to quit the regional group.

France called for mediation amid the worsening situation, and Britain warned its citizens against "all but essential travel" to Venezuela.

"We will not let the homeland fall into chaos", he said.

Senator Ted Cruz was among the first USA lawmakers to react to news of the sanctions. He said Maduro's government also believes in CELAC and UNASUR, which comprises 12 South American nations.

The United States convened a meeting on Wednesday of the UN Security Council.

"It doesn't help at all because the United States is not a mediator", he said.

Russian Federation champions the political dialogue between the main political actors in Venezuela, with no interference by foreign powers or global organizations, in order to guarantee stability and economic development for the country.

"Violent armed groups go out daily to commit crime", she said.
