On the night of April 4th, press photographers who were covering protests in Caracas were attacked by armed security personnel from the building that houses the Prisons Ministry (seen in the picture).

Meanwhile, Johana Álvarez, one of the journalists attacked by masked thugs inside the UCV campus the day before, shared her experience in CadenaTres, the Mexican TV channel she works for. The full interview is below:
