A new ration card is the latest idea by Venezuelan President Nicholas Maduro to deal with the country's perpetual food shortages.
A key opposition leader jailed for more than a month by Venezuela's protest-embattled government says leaders from across Latin America are engaged in a "shameful silence" toward human rights abuses being carried by "paramilitary groups" loyal to Venezuelan President Nicholas Maduro.
Venezuelan officials said Tuesday that they have received a formal request for asylum National Security Agency leaker Edward J. Snowden, who has been trapped in legal limbo in the transit lounge of Moscow international airport since last month.
"Each month we'll set aside, I don't know, 500 apartments and maybe 500 vehicles, special bonuses, vacation packages," Mr. Maduro told a crowd of Venezuelans, Reuters reported.
"The only way to eat is to produce or import, and right now neither of those [aspects of a healthy economy] is functioning correctly," he said.
