VENEZUELA ON THE EDGE:  Venezuelan beauty queen and student protester Genesis Carmona was fatally shot Wednesday during an anti-government protest in Valencia. She was killed when unknown gunmen on motorcycles started shooting on a crowd of protesters.

Genesis Carmona, who was shot in the head, was photographed lying in the arms of a man riding a motorcycle after the gunfire broke out at Tuesday’s protest. She is the fifth person to be killed in the protests, which were sparked three weeks ago against Nicolas Maduro’s government. Protest leader Leopoldo Lopez was arrested.
