Venezuela: Thousands cross bridge into Colombia for better opportunities

At least 48 people in Venezuela have been killed in clashes between anti-government protesters and police in the last two months.

Thousands have crossed a key bridge into neighbouring Colombia to escape the crisis in search of better lives and opportunities.
