Less than a week after Venezuela marked its 100th day of civil unrest, the country continues to spiral out of control as more violent anti-government acts have become a fixture in the collapsing nation. Just recently, a bomb explosion in the streets of Caracas killed three people during the day of the “roadblock against the dictatorship” — a ten-hour blockade of the nation’s streets staged by the Venezuelan opposition.

Communications Minister Ernesto Villegas said seven national guard soldiers incurred injuries during the explosion, five of whom suffered third-degree burns. Justice Minister Nestor Reverol said the bombing was a cold-blooded effort to ambush the national guard soldiers. On his Twitter account, the minister said: “In the afternoon, ultra-right terrorist groups attempted to kill GNB [Bolivarian National Guard] soldiers on motorbike in Altamira. [The soldiers were surprised by] explosion of an artifact hidden in a backpack and placed by a roadblock.” Still according to Reverol, two national guard soldiers suffered gunshot wounds in El Hatillo and Petare as violent demonstrations continued to sprout near the country’s capital.

This was the latest in a string of violent demonstrations that have plagued the country since early April, when the opposition called for the ousting of the country’s present administration. The anti-government rallies were marred by bombings, public lynchings, and killings, raising the current death toll to 103 during more than 100 days of civil unrest.

José Luis Rivas Aranguren, a candidate for the National Constituent Assembly (ANC), was shot 11 times in the face when he was about to address the crowd at a campaign event in Aragua state. The assailant was identified as an audience member who fled the crime scene after the assassination. Two other people were injured in the incident. Rivas was announced by the government on May 1 as a candidate for the transport sector in the ANC in a bid to taper the ongoing efforts against the current administration. Days before Aranguren’s murder, ANC supporter and student leader Juan Lopez was shot dead under similar circumstances.
