CARACAS: Venezuelan Prisons Minister Iris Varela said Sunday that 58 people were killed during a riot at a jail in the country's northwest, lowering an earlier given death toll by three.

"The toll of unfortunate people who lost their lives, both here at the

prison and from injuries suffered here, stands at 57 people. Painfully, we must add to this one more person whose body was found burned," Varela said during a press conference from the Uribana jail in Lara state.
