Teen is second killed in fresh Venezuela protests: prosecutor

A sixteen-year-old boy protesting against President Nicolas Maduro's embattled government was killed Wednesday, prosecutors said, the second to die in the latest round of unrest.

Prosecutors did not immediately release his name or the circumstances around his death.

But it brings to 105 the number of people killed in four months of violent anti-Maduro protests, being capped with a two-day national strike. DM
