Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has begun sealing his country's borders to block the delivery of US humanitarian aid. He says US aid convoys are cover for an invasion by foreign troops. The move comes as Maduro's power struggle with opposition leader Juan Guaido escalates. Later today the battle between Nicolas Maduro and Juan Guaido is set to become a battle of music as groups from rival camps play concerts at the border with Colombia. Billionare businessman Richard Branson is sponsoring the Live aid style show on the Colombian side of the frontier to raise 100 million dollars in humanitarian aid for Venezuela and pressure the government to let US aid into the country.
