First Red Cross aid delivery arrives in Venezuela

Wednesday 22:45 GMT

Two dozen tons of medical supplies arrived in Caracas, after Nicolas Maduro granted the Red Cross permission to deliver the aid.

Francesco Rocca, president of the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, said in a tweet. Last week, acting president Nicolas Maduro reached an agreement with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) to allow in the aid into the country, after years opposing such a move, on the basis that it represented intervention efforts against his government.
