Venezuela: No Money, Mo' Problems

Where did all the money go, and how did Venezuela come to where it is today?

    Venezuela used to be the richest country in Latin America, sitting on the world's largest oil reserves. Yet Venezuelans are scrambling for money, food and basic necessities.

    More than 100 people were killed in protests since April last year.
