Venezuela holds anti-invasion drills at border

Colombia has told its citizens to remain calm as Venezuela carries out large-scale military drills along the border.

Venezuela is grappling with acute shortages of food and medicines.

The United Nations says one in five are now suffering from hunger and 1.5 million people have fled the worsening conditions to Colombia.
