FILE - In this Sept. 23, 2010 file photo, the body of a young man lies covered by a cloth in a street in the Petare slum of Caracas, Venezuela. The Venezuelan government stopped releasing official crime statistics in 2005, leaving it to nonprofit groups to sort through the casualties. Small-time gangs and criminals commit most of Venezuela’s violence, as opposed to the well-financed drug cartels that have terrorized Mexico and Central America as they fight over lucrative trafficking routes.
