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.

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