Venezuelan authorities on Thursday continued to barricade a key border crossing with Colombia to prevent aid from entering the country. The military used a tanker and two large containers to block the Tienditas Bridge. National Assembly Leader Juan Guaidó, who invoked a clause in the Venezuelan Constitution to become interim president, had promised to bring much-needed food and medicine into the country. Inflation in Venezuela tops 1 million percent, and the country suffers from food and medicine shortages.
