Thousands of Venezuelans defy blockade to flood across the border into Colombia as self-declared President Juan Guaido calls for nationwide protests

Thousands of Venezuelans were snapped on Sunday ignoring the country's border blockade and crossing illegally into Colombia.

Among them were Venezuelan mothers forced to carry young children on their backs as they crossed into La Prada, Colombia, which is near the city of Cucuta.

The crowds crossed the border into the neighbouring country, despite a blockade imposed by the Army on orders from President Nicolas Maduro.
