Doctors demand humanitarian aid be allowed into Venezuela – Loop News Trinidad and Tobago

Venezuelan doctors are demanding their nation’s military allow humanitarian aid into the country.

About two dozen doctors held a protest Sunday in Colombia in front of the entrance to a bridge that has been blocked by the Venezuelan military.

Aid including food and emergency medical supplies provided by the United States is sitting in a storage facility near the bridge.

Dr. Katia Diaz says every day that the aid sits waiting for transport into Venezuela is one more day in which patient lives are at risk.

Venezuela’s opposition is pledging to get the assistance into the country but President Nicolas Maduro has vowed not to accept it.

Maduro contends the aid delivery is part of a larger U.S. intervention to remove him from power.
