9. 1 killed, 12 hurt as gunmen shoot at voters in Venezuela
CARACAS, Aug. 15 (Xinhuanet) -- One person was killed and 12 others were wounded Sunday when gunmen opened fire on voters just outside Caracas, during a recall referendum on the political future of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, Caracas fire chief Rodolfo Briceno said.

"What we know is that voters were in line and people opened fire from motorbikes, and there are 12 people sustaining bullet wounds and one person died," said Briceno.

He added that the incident occurred in a poor neighborhood about 17 km east of the capital.
