Venezuela announces 60 day ban on border trade

Tuesday, August 25, 2015

Venezuela on Monday announced a 60-day extension of its partial closure of the border with Colombia after President Nicolas Maduro said his country was under attack by neighboring paramilitary groups, drug traffickers and black marketeers.

The move came after the governor of Tachira state in western Venezuela said more than 1,000 undocumented Colombians had been expelled over the weekend for suspected black market activities.
