Aid and food reaches Venezuelan border but Maduro's military stands in way



Medical supplies and food have finally arrived at the Venezuelan border but are unlikely to reach those in desperate need of aid anytime soon.

The country’s leader Nicolas Maduro has so far ignored calls to allow help in meaning thousands of Venezuelans are crossing into Colombia in a search for much-needed healthcare.

One mother walked to the border to get antibiotics and basic supplies for her son and called the situation ‘very hard’.

Sky’s US correspondent Amanda Walker reports from the Colombian border city of Cucuta.
