New Military Unit To Fight Crime in Venezuela

It was late at night. I was already in bed. And as usual, every time I go to bed early, I get a phone call from Al Jazeera asking for a phoner !

There were around 700 kidnapping cases officially registered in Venezuela in 2010 and God knows how many homicides..

Days after Baseball Star Wilson Ramos' rescue from a 51-hour kidnapping ordeal, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez warned today that the criminals are not the poor, as he created a new military unit to help fight crime..

I hate how I keep saying am am ... half asleep I guess ! :)
