Venezuelan prison minister Iris Varela has announced the closure of the jail where more than 60 people died in a riot on Friday.

Ms Varela said the female wing of the Uribana prison near the city of Barquisimeto had already been cleared.

The BBC's Sarah Grainger, in Caracas, says the authorities still do not have full control of the prison.
