  2. Guardsmen who left posts 'not deserters' - Guaidó

    Several soldiers from the Venezuelan national guard have left their posts ahead of the planned aid deliveries.

    Self-declared interim President Juan Guaidó says they are not "deserters" because they have decided to "stand on the side of the people and the constitution".

    He adds that "the advent of freedom and democracy to Venezuela is already unstoppable".

  3. Why are tensions so high?

    We are at a flashpoint in the Venezuelan crisis, with tensions rising in recent days over a row about the delivery of humanitarian aid to the country.

    As Venezuela faces a power struggle between President Nicolás Maduro and Juan Guaidó, who has been recognised as the country's interim leader by dozens of countries, including the US and most Latin American nations, civilians are face an economic crisis.

    The country's inflation rate has seen prices soar, leaving many Venezuelans struggling to afford basic items such as food, toiletries and medicine.

    Mr Guaidó says this has left thousands of others at risk of dying and about 2.7 million people have fled the country since 2015.

    But President Maduro says the US is trying to manufacture a humanitarian crisis, warning that attempts to deliver aid would open the way for US military intervention.
