  • Nightclub brawl in Venezuela kills 17 students celebrating graduation

The homicide rate in Caracas alone was 104 per 100,000 people, the Venezuelan Observatory of Violence said.

The incident on Saturday morning occurred after a middle school graduation party degenerated into a brawl and someone detonated the tear gas, according to Interior and Justice Minister Nestor Reverol.

More than 500 terrified revellers rushed for the exit at the Los Cotorros club in the capital Caracas when the device was activated during a fight in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Among those detained are two minors identified by witnesses along with the owner of the club for failing to implement measures to prevent weapons being brought into the premises.

Eight minors were among the dead, and five other people were injured, including one in critical condition who were being treated at nearby hospitals, said Reverol. Authorities have closed the nightclub and have launched an investigation.

Reverol added that the nightclub manager had also been arrested for breaking the law against "avoiding the entry of firearms and ammunition" into establishments organizing such events.

Jesus Armas, an opposition councilman who lives in the neighborhood, said the Interior Ministry should explain how a civilian was able to obtain tear gas canisters that should only be utilized by state security forces.

Hundreds of people were said to be celebrating inside when the incident happened. The father of an injured son told local media that he told him that the tear gas grenade had been thrown from the bathroom and that the establishment closed its doors after.
