15 corpses found in mass grave at Venezue­lan prison:

The Washington Post Sunday - - THE WORLD -

Fif­teen corpses, three of them head­less, have been found in a mass grave at a Venezue­lan prison and more may be dis­cov­ered, in­ves­ti­ga­tors said. The grisly find this month at the gen­eral pen­i­ten­tiary in cen­tral Guarico state has thrown a spot­light on the South Amer­i­can na­tion’s crowded, vi­o­lent and gang-dom­i­nated pris­ons where scores of in­mates die each year. Gov­ern­ment of­fi­cials say more bod­ies are likely to be found at the prison.
