Venezuela Arrests Synagogue Attackers
After the shocking attacks on a synagogue in Venezuela last month, thug-in-chief Hugo Chavez suggested that the attackers might have been Jews themselves. So you have to wonder what kind of pressure was brought to bear on Chavez to get him to take action: Venezuela detains 11 suspects in synagogue attacks.
CARACAS, Venezuela – Authorities arrested 11 people, including seven police officers, suspected of carrying out an attack on a Caracas synagogue that raised concerns of rising of anti-Semitism in Venezuela, officials said Sunday.
The Attorney General’s Office said an agent of the federally controlled investigative police force and one of the synagogue’s security guards were among the 11 suspects arrested during raids over the weekend. The suspects are scheduled to be arraigned Monday.
