Caracas: At least 11 people were killed in a clash between armed gangs in the central Venezuelan town of Altagracia de Orituco, the Attorney General`s Office said Tuesday in a statement.

"Before dawn (Monday), there was a confrontation between two groups at the San Juan de Dios ranch...which left 11 people dead from bullet wounds," the AG`s office said.
