UN human rights chief Bachelet to meet Maduro, Guaido on Venezuela visit

The United Nations’ top human rights official, former Chilean president Michelle Bachelet, arrived in Venezuela on Wednesday for a visit that comes amid heightened international pressure on President Nicolás Maduro for allegedly silencing opponents with jail, torture and excessive violence. On her first visit to the crisis-wracked country, Bachelet, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, is expected to meet with Maduro and opposition leader Juan Guaidó.
