Fifth reported death in Venezuelan protests

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) - A Venezuelan mayor says a 22-year-old woman has died after being shot in an anti-government protest.

Mayor Enzo Scrano says Genesis Carmona died Wednesday in Valencia from a head wound. Scrano is an opposition mayor in one of the districts that make up the city of Valencia.

Carmona was Miss Tourism 2013 for the state of Carabobo.

She was struck by a bullet Tuesday when unknown gunmen on motorcycles opened fire on opposition protesters.

She is the fifth death during protests in the past week.
