Colombia calls for help to face migrant surge


Bogota: Colombia lacks the capacity to face by itself a deluge of Venezuelan migrants fleeing their crisis-afflicted country, Bogota's top diplomat said on Tuesday. Foreign Minister Carlos Holmes Trujillo called instead for an international response. More than 1.6 million Venezuelans have left their homeland since 2015 -- most of them for Colombia -- when economic troubles worsened, according to the United Nations. Venezuelans suffer from shortages of essential goods. (AFP)
