CWN Editor's Note: “Police stood by idly as the [pro-government] mob moved into the cathedral, where the mothers of political prisoners were carrying out a hunger strike,” according to the report. “Videos subsequently uploaded to social media show screaming protesters swarming the cathedral vicar, Fr. Rodolfo Lopez, and later pummeling him.”
