    The UN Security Council has held an emergency meeting on Venezuela following more violent anti-government protests. The US is warning that the country's food and political crises could escalate into a major conflict.

    Venezuela's government is now sending troops to the country's west after protests there led to looting.

    At least 43 people have died during six weeks of demonstrations.

    Al Jazeera's John Holman reports from the Colombian border town of Cucuta.
