A group of women and children who were among 24 Trinidadian Muslims detained in Venezuela were released to immigration officials in Caracas yesterday. The group was released to the immigration officials even as members of the Venezuela intelligence agency held lengthy talks with a delegation from Port-of-Spain headed by Rear Admiral Richard Kelshall. Kelshall’s team left here yesterday on a fact-finding mission after the local Muslims were detained in Caracas one week ago on suspicion of being terrorists. They were reportedly held after they were found to be in possession of arms and ammunition at a hotel there. The adults remained in custody yesterday after appearing at the anti-terrorism tribunal court on Tuesday.
