    The flow of Venezuelans passing into neighbouring Colombia nearly came to a standstill at one popular border crossing on Sunday as President Maduro’s government held its controversial vote.

    Roadblocks erected by the so-called resistance, and fears of robberies on highways, made travel difficult for Venezuelans who were wanting to leave within 24 hours of the vote.

    Al Jazeera's David Mercer reports from Cucuta, Colombia, on the border with Venezuela.
