Venezuelan media is reporting that dozens of people were injured in Caracas today after the attempted mutiny against Maduro. The Efecto Cocuyo website says at least 69 people were taken to hospital two of them having received gunshot wounds.
Salud Chacao director Maggia Santi said Tuesday that 30 of those injured were shot with rubber bullets. Another 16 sustained bodily trauma, three reported difficulty breathing and one was shot with a firearm.
She said doctors have sufficient supplies to treat the injured, in part due to recent donations by organizations including the Red Cross.
