Venezuela reopens border crossing with Colombia

 

Thousands of Venezuelans have crossed into Colombia to buy food, medicine and other essentials after the border between the two countries was reopened.

Long lines of Venezuelans stood at two international bridges near the city of CĂșcuta waiting to have their documents checked by Colombian officials.

The country has faced shortages of basic supplies as a result of a severe years-long economic crisis.
