Spanning loopt op terwijl Venezolanen chaos ontvluchten

August 22, 2018 - Duizenden Venezolanen blijven de economische en humanitaire crisis in hun land ontvluchten, en sommige migranten worden met groeiende vijandigheid van hun Zuid-Amerikaanse buren geconfronteerd.

Stricter border rules and mob violence have greeted some migrants as they look for refuge from the chaotic situation in Venezuela, a CNN report said.

The mass exodus is ratcheting up tensions in countries such as Peru, Ecuador and Brazil even as Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro announces the introduction of a new plan to stabilise the economy and tackle hyperinflation.

An estimated 2.3 million Venezuelans have fled the country since 2014, according to the United Nations.
