Russia Today journalist injured by opposition in Venezuela

A journalist from RT's Redfish project has been injured during protests in Venezuela, Russia Today reported.

The journalist, Nicole Kramm, was "nearly killed", the broadcaster said in a tweet, when members of the Venezuelan opposition rammed armoured vehicles into civilians on the border with Colombia. She sustained a leg injury but continued working.

Unrest has broken out on Venezuela's border with Brazil as trucks with humanitarian aid tried to cross into the country despite a ban by the country's leader Nicolas Maduro. Similar attempts to deliver aid from Colombia prompted Caracas to sever ties with Bogota.

The unrest led to 335 people being injured in clashes between law enforcement officers and protesters.
