A high-profile Venezuelan journalist was freed on Monday, after a week-long kidnapping that thrust attention once again on the South American nation's endemic violent crime. Authorities said Nairobi Pinto, the 32-year-old head of correspondents for private TV station Globovision, was found "safe and sound" in the town of Cua, about 38 miles south of Caracas. "She's alive, she's fine," said her TV station, which for years was a vehemently anti-government broadcaster until a change of ownership in 2013. The United Nations said last week Venezuela had the world's second-highest murder rate, quoting 2012 figures of 53.7 homicides per 100,000 people. less
