Simonovis whose decade-long imprisonment had rallied Venezuela’s opposition has been released from jail on humanitarian grounds to continue serving a 30-year sentence at home. Simonovis had been jailed since 2004 in connection with the death of pro-government protesters who had rushed to the defense of then-President Hugo Chavez during a failed coup attempt two years earlier. In 2009, he was convicted of aggravated murder. (AP Photo/Fernando Llano)
