#AceWorldNews A Chilean woman was shot dead while clearing a barricade put up by anti-government protesters, Reuters reported.

Gisela Rubilar, 47, who was studying in the western Venezuelan city of Merida, is the first foreign fatality during a month of civil unrest in Venezuela, authorities said.

“She was ambushed by an extreme right-wing group,” Alexis Ramirez, the governor of Merida state, said, blaming the killing of Rubilar on unidentified demonstrators.

The deaths of Rubilar and of a protester shot in the border state of Tachira, brought to at least 22 the number of fatalities in five weeks of unrest.
