Venezuela crisis: Aid Lorries stuck in Colombia border city

Agency News

Caracas, Feb 8: The first lorries with US humanitarian aid for Venezuela have arrived in the Colombian border city of Cúcuta.

The vehicles are currently parked near the Tienditas Bridge, which remains blocked by Venezuelan troops, a report in BBC said.

Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro, who has the support of the army, has rejected letting it into the country.

Opposition leader Juan Guaidó, who has declared himself interim president, has warned many Venezuelans are in danger of dying without international aid.

Mr Guaidó is head of Venezuela's National Assembly and says the constitution allows him to assume power temporarily when the president is deemed illegitimate. (UNI)
