Venezuela: first US aid trucks arrive at border blockaded by Maduro
- Two trucks reach Colombian border town of Cúcuta
- Demonstrators welcome US aid, shouting ‘Maduro out’
The first trucks carrying humanitarian aid for Venezuela have arrived at the Colombian border city of Cúcuta, as opponents of Nicolás Maduro step up efforts to further isolate the embattled president.
The convoy of two large articulated lorries and seven smaller trucks reached the Tienditas international bridge on Thursday, a day after Venezuelan authorities blockaded the crossing with shipping containers and a fuel tanker.
