Updated & Revised: Diego Arria's farm robbed

Dear Journalists,

Diego Arria, former Venezuelan Ambassador to the United Nations, while attending a U.N. meeting in South Africa this week had his family farm in Venezuela wrecked by at least twenty home invaders last night. The thugs tied up his employees and assaulted them.

Ambassador Arria said that the thugs were armed with machine guns, Kalashnikov riffles, tear gas, and other war artillery. The thugs took two cars from the farm, and destroyed everything on their way including stables, plantations, turned beds upside down, offices, etc. Ambassador Arria is outraged by this crime.

There are reports that while the employees were assaulted the home invaders were saying that "this is what happens to the enemies of the Revolution "Patria, Socialismo o Muerte."

The following are links to reports from the Venezuelan press:
