Tensões elevam-se com venezuelanos a fugir ao caos

August 22, 2018 - Milhares de venezuelanos continuam a fugir da crise económica e
humanitária no país, e alguns migrantes enfrentam a crescente
hostilidade dos seus vizinhos sul-americanos.

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.
