Colombia’s migration office said it cancelled over 300 daily entrance passes for Venezuelan politicians and their families who support Mr Maduro. Colombia has borne the brunt of the exodus of Venezuelans fleeing malnutrition and political turmoil in their once-prosperous nation.

Around 800,000 Venezuelans are said to have crossed the border and settled in Colombia.
