Diplomats visit Venezuela border to review migrant crisis

BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) — A group of international diplomats and human rights workers have travelled to the border between Colombia and Venezuela to study the migrant crisis.

OAS Secretary General Luis Almagro led the delegation Friday and said countries in the Western Hemisphere should work together to provide relief to thousands of Venezuelan migrants who are fleeing hyperinflation and food shortages in their country.

A day prior Almagro called the Venezuelan government a "dictatorship" and said that the crisis will only be resolved if democracy is restored.

The working group will meet with government officials and aid groups in the Colombian city of Cucuta and review ways to provide relief to migrants.
