    Colombia is struggling to help the growing number of Venezuelan migrants who fled hunger and violence back home.

    Tens of thousands have left Venezuela because of an economic crisis that has caused severe shortages of food and basic needs. Clashes between anti-government protesters and police in the last two months have claimed the lives of at least 58 people.

    Al Jazeera's Alessandro Rampietti reports from the bordering Colombian town of Cucuta.
