Beauty Queen Genesis Carmona Killed by Gunmen in Anti-Government Venezuelan Protests
The Mirror reported:
A young beauty queen yesterday became the fifth person to die in violent anti-government protests that have rocked Venezuela.
Genesis Carmona, 22, was shot in the head when gunmen on motorbikes fired on protesters during a demonstration in Valencia, in the north of the South American country.
The model, who was Miss Turismo 2013 for the state of Carabobo, was taken by motorcycle to hospital where surgeons battled in vain to save her life.
A relative of Genesis, who asked not to be named, said: “How long are we going to live like this?
“How long do we have to tolerate this pressure, with them killing us?”
Genesis had been studying tourism at university and her relative added: “She only needed one more semester to graduate.”
