Colombians flee Venezuela after mass deportations

Colombian police help women carry their belongings as they cross the Tachira river on the border from Brisas de Barinitas, Venezuela into Colombia, August 25, 2015Hundreds of Colombians fled Venezuela Tuesday, opting to leave the country with their belongings rather than be deported empty-handed like more than 1,000 people sent home in an escalating border crisis. Some carted refrigerators or mattresses on their backs as they made the trek from the Venezuelan state of Tachira back to their home country, wading through the waist-deep water of the river that forms the border. Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro ordered the border between Tachira and the Colombian department of Norte de Santander closed last week in response to an attack by unidentified assailants on a military patrol, which wounded a civilian and three soldiers on an anti-smuggling operation.
