    Peru has imposed new entry restrictions in an effort to limit the flow of migrants from Venezuela.

    The Peruvian government says asylum seekers must now carry passports.

    Previously they could enter the country using just a Venezuelan national identity (ID) card.

    Al Jazeera's Mariana Sanchez reports from the Peruvian city of Tumbes, on the northern border with Ecuador.
