At least 68 people have been killed following rioting and a fire at a police station in Venezuela.
Forensic doctors are on the scene in the city of Valencia, in the state of Carabobo, to determine the exact number of fatalities, authorities said.
A police officer was shot in the leg and is in a stable condition in hospital.
Police used tear gas to disperse relatives who surrounded the station after news of the fire broke.
News of the horror broke late on Wednesday night when authorities released the information. Chief State Prosecutor Tarek Saab said an investigation into what had happened would begin immediately.
The blaze reportedly started after prisoners set fire to mattresses in an attempt to break out on Wednesday.
