  • Description

    At his heavily guarded residence in Caracas, Venezuela, President Romulo Betancourt conferred with senior officers of the Venezuelan Army, Nov 30, about further measures to be taken against the extreme left-wing instigators of a week's severe riots in several cities.

    The Army was brought out, Nov 28, to crush an uprising described by the President as "an attempt to instal in Venezuela a regime similar to that in Cuba." More than 200 people have been arrested so far.

    Students of Santa Maria University, Caracas, entrenched in a dormitory against the Socialist Government forces, raided the streets of the city, Nov 30, and set fire to buses. These scenes stood in strange contrast to the peaceful Christmas toy stalls traditionally dotted about the city at this time of the year.
