The Venezuela protests continue to rage on.

According to The Huffington Post, one of the latest casualties amongst innocent civilians was a pregnant woman named Adriana Urquiola. The 28-year-old woman was killed just outside of Caracas, where she was stuck in traffic as the result of a barricade. Urquiola was shot in the head as she was approaching the barricade built by anti-government protestors.

Reports say Urquiola was not participating in the protests and it remains unclear as to why she was fired upon.

Urquiola was five months pregnant and she is among 32 who have died as a result of Venezuela's unrest.
