Official Word:


An attack by gold miners on a group of Yanomami tribespeople in Venezuela has left up to 80 people dead, according to campaign groups.

Axis of Logic report:


Update: It appears that the Yanomami massacre was a complete fabrication.

4 days ago, the BBC reported that up to 80 indigenous people in a Yanomami village in the Venezuelan amazon were slaughtered by "illegal gold miners." Their only source for this report was the director of Survival International
A spokeswoman at the public prosecutor’s office said the government could not yet confirm the attack nor how many people may have been killed
