Italian citizen killed in Venezuela

Former Miss Venezuela and Miss Universe Monica Spear, killed during a highway robbery, is the most illustrious victim of Venezuelan endemic violence.

A 42-year-old Italian citizen, Mr Cristiano Vecchiatini, was killed by gunmen in Guanare, Venezuela.

Mr Vecchiatini was married to a Venezuelan woman and owned a business in the Latin American country.

Ruled by a leftist Government led by President Nicolas Maduro, Venezuela is plagued by violent crime. Members of the opposition have been accused the Government of using the gangs, rebranded as “collectives”, to suppress the protests against the lack of public safety and the very bad performance of the planned economy.
