Porlamar, Margarita Island, Venezuela – Assault resulting in death

Assault resulting in death

A Dutch flagged sailing vessel at anchor off the Concorde hotel with 2 persons onboard was boarded by armed men in the early morning hours of September 3, 2013. The captain, a Dutch citizen, was shot and later died from his injuries at a local hospital. Few boats visit Margarita, and great caution should be exercised if visiting this area.
