Venezuela - A group of about 20 homeless people stormed into a synagogue Monday in Caracas, arguing that the building had been abandoned and they needed a home.

The three-storey Beth Abraham synagogue in the Alta Florida neighbourhood of the Venezuelan capital has been undergoing renovation for the last two years, said representatives of Venezuela’s Jewish community.

In a recent clash with Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, Jewish groups including the Simon Wiesenthal Centre denounced what they saw as state anti-Semitism in the South American country.
