Venezuela's Fight for the Border

Venezuela's Fight for the Border

Venezuela's President Nicoals Maduro is blocking the U.S.-backed aid that is meant to weaken his control over the country and to enhance the standing of opposition leader Juan Guaido, who is recognized by more than 50 countries as the nation’s legitimate ruler.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s forces fired tear gas and buckshot on activists trying to deliver humanitarian aid in violent clashes that left two people dead and some 300 injured.
