No violence has been reported and a Brazilian diplomat and Brazilian security forces were dispatched to the embassy to ameliorate the situation.
A heightened security presence and localized transportation disruptions are expected in the area over the coming hours.
Individuals in Brasilia are advised to monitor the situation, avoid the Venezuelan embassy, anticipate a heightened security presence and localized transportation disruptions, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
