The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced Monday that 152 missionaries are being transferred out of Venezuela because of civil unrest. Missionaries staying in the country are citizens of Venezuela.

In the statement the Church said it was monitoring the safety of its missionaries. "Venezuelan missionaries are in frequent communication with their mission presidents, and every effort is being made to keep them safe."

Anti-government street protests by Venezuelans fed up with soaring inflation and shortages of basic items such as flour and cooking oil have roiled Venezuela for more than a month. The Venezuelan government says at least 25 people have died in the turmoil since Feb. 12.
