Venezuela to close Colombia border

Monday, August 11, 2014

Venezuela will close its border with Colombia at night to crack down on the smuggling of oil and food.

While Venezuela grapples with shortages of basic pantry staples, some are making money selling heavily subsidized oil and pantry staples in Colombian border towns.

Venezuelan General Vladimir Padrino announced Saturday that the 2,240-kilometer border will be closed between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m., starting Monday.
