Tensions rise as Venezuela blocks border bridge in standoff over aid

Cucuta, Colombia (CNN)Two US trucks carrying food and medical supplies arrived at Venezuela’s border this afternoon, according to a US official in the Colombian border town of Cucuta. But it is not clear when or whether the aid will reach people inside the country.

The government of embattled Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has blocked aid deliveries amid rising tensions over opposition plans to bring humanitarian aid into the country.
Venezuela’s opposition leader and self-declared president, Juan Guaido, last week named Cucuta as one of three collection points for the delivery of international aid.
