Accusations over who started unrest traded after basic aid supplies crossed border into Venezuela.

by

    Violent clashes between Venezuelan people and authorities have been reported from the border with Brazil.

    The clashes happened soon after the trucks carrying basic aid supplies crossed the border into Venezuela.

     Al Jazeera's Mohammed Jamjoom has more from Pacaraima, on Brazil’s border with Venezuela.

    Correction 24/02/2019: A previous version of the text for this video incorrectly identified the authorities as Brazilian. The headline and the text have been corrected to reflect that Venezuelan troops clashed with their people near the Brazilian border.
