5 police officials suspected in Venezuela jail fire detained
Five police officials are suspected of being responsible for a fire that killed 68 people in a police station jail in Venezuela and have been detained, the nation's chief prosecutor said.

Tarek William Saab wrote on Twitter that the officials are believed "responsible for the tragic events that caused the death of 68 citizens" but provided no further details, ABC reported on Sunday.

Among the detained is Jose Luis Rodriguez, sub-director of the police station in Valencia where a fire tore through cells where about 200 prisoners were being kept.
