Venezuela crisis: Brazil deploys troops after migrant attacks

Brazil is sending troops and extra police to the border town of Pacaraima where Venezuelan migrant camps were attacked and set ablaze.

Venezuela has asked its neighbour to ensure the safety of its citizens. In Ecuador, desperate Venezuelans were reported to be crossing the border in defiance of new entry requirements.
