Officials in Venezuela say they haven't any evidence of a massacre at a village of the Yanomami Tribe.
Tribal members said a village in southern Venezuela, near the border with Brazil, was attacked in July. But officials who traveled to the area didn't find anything, the Associated Press reported.
The attack was blamed on miners from neighboring Brazil.
