Harrowing pictures of emaciated former oil workers in Venezuela capture their plight more than a week after they went on hunger strike over lost wages

The workers used to be a part of one of the most productive and lucrative oil exporting industries in the world...

Despite having the largest proven oil reserves in the world, Venezuela is now producing less than half the amount of oil it was in 1997 when Mr Chavez came into power.

The crash of the oil industry comes amidst wider economic turmoil - the country's inflation rate hit 130,060 percent in 2018 and the country's GDP shrank by 22.5 per cent in the third quarter last year.

The function of wisdom is to discriminate between good and evil.
