Venezuelan opposition leader meets with Pence after weekend of violence

(CNN)Venezuela’s self-declared interim president and opposition leader, Juan Guaido, arrived in Bogota, Colombia, on Sunday ahead of a Monday meeting with US Vice President Mike Pence.

Guaido, who is battling President Nicolas Maduro for control of the country, made the trip after a violent weekend in which the Venezuelan military blocked food and supplies from crossing the border from Colombia.
The Colombian foreign minister said 285 people were hurt, with 37 requiring hospitalization, after the Venezuelan National Guard fired tear gas and rubber bullets at protesters near the Colombian border Saturday.
