Soldiers burnt with flame thrower?

April 28, 2004

A former reporter who is now an Accion Democratica Deputy in the National Assembly, charged today that the soldiers burnt in the Mara Fort in Zulia state were burnt with a flame thrower. Reportedly, frame thrower are used in border opertaions between Colombia and Venezuela which is what Fort Mara is mostly used for. Sounds too far fetched to me, but if true it will give a level of human rights abuse within the military that nobody in Venezuela ever dreamed of.
