Venezuela’s Death Squad: Masked special police unit is accused of killing more than 200 as President Maduro desperately clings on to power

Armed and masked members of Venezuela’s ‘Death Squad’ have killed more than 200 people over the last year, according to the country’s leading rights’ group.  

President Maduro established the Bolivarian National Police’s Special Action Forces (FAES) in 2017, ostensibly to tackle emergency situations such as terrorism and hostage-taking.
