A journalist from RT's Redfish project has been injured during protests in Venezuela, according to the broadcaster. 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.
Redfish is a subsidiary of RT's Ruptly global mutlimedia agency that focuses on production of short documentaries and video content.
The unrest led to 335 people being injured in clashes between law enforcement officers and protesters on Venezuela's borders with Colombia and Brazil.
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro refuses to allow in unauthorized aid deliveries, saying that they are a ploy to topple his government. Amid Saturday's attempts to force unauthorized aid deliveries into the country, Caracas severed diplomatic and political relations with Colombia, ordering diplomats to leave the country in 24 hours.
