3 Venezuelan troops defect at the border with Colombia

Three members of the Venezuelan National Guard defected Saturday at Venezuela's border with Colombia, the Colombian immigration department said.

The troops abandoned their posts at the Simon Bolivar International Bridge on the Colombia-Venezuela border and requested help from Colombia's immigration officials.

Also Saturday, soldiers with Venezuela's National Guard fired tear gas and rubber bullets at protesters who were demanding to cross the border at Ureña into Colombia to work, according to a CNN crew that witnessed the scene at the Tienditas Bridge.
