The U.S. Air Forces Flying aid to Venezuela
The U.S. Air Force has begun flying tons of aid to a Colombian town on the Venezuelan border as part of an effort meant to bring humanitarian aid to the people of Venezuela.
The first of three C-17 cargo planes took off Saturday from Homestead Air Reserve Base in Florida and landed in the town of Cucuta which is being used as a collection point for aid that's supposed to be distributed by backers of Juan Guaido, the congressional leader who is recognized by the U.S. as Venezuela's legitimate president.
Maduro has vowed to block the aid, which he calls unnecessary and illegal. He blames any hunger in the country on U.S. restrictions and his domestic foes.
Saturday's 180-ton shipment includes food or health packages for more than 25,000 people.
