Venezuela: US Embassy Staff Shot At Strip Club

Two US embassy employees have been shot at a strip club in Venezuela's capital, police and US State Department officials said.

"Medical staff inform us that their injuries are not life-threatening," US State Department spokesman Patrick Ventrell told reporters in Washington.

Mr Ventrell was not specific about where in Caracas the two men were when they were injured, but noted that they were at "some sort of social spot or somewhere outside of the embassy grounds".
