Media forced to remove news of boy's killing in Venezuela
Venezuelan media were banned from publishing the murder of a boy in his school in Caracas; the victim, 12 years old, was shot dead by his classmates on December 9. The Council for Protection of Children and Adolescences ordered to remove all the contents regarding the event, censoring also the readers’ comments on the online newspapers’ forums. Complying with the request, the Venezuelan media apologised for their behaviour.
