Venezuela Military Continues to Block Aid


The Venezuelan military, loyal to embattled President Nicolas Maduro, on Friday continued to block the bridge where humanitarian aid is stationed.
Dozens of volunteers prepared sacks of rice, canned tuna and protein-rich biscuits for malnourished children at a warehouse on the Colombian border on Friday as Venezuela’s opposition vowed to deliver the U.S. humanitarian aid to their troubled nation, even if it means mounting a mass mobilization of their countrymen to carry it in, the country’s opposition said.
