BOGOTA, Nov 19 (Reuters) – Colombia’s government said on Thursday Venezuelan soldiers blew up two small pedestrian bridges that stretch across their border in the latest incident to test diplomatic ties between the Andean neighbors. Colombian Defense Minister Gabriel Silva told reporters that uniformed men apparently from the Venezuelan army blew up the bridges with explosives in what he described as a violation of international law. “Uniformed men, apparently from the Venezuelan army, arrived in trucks on the Venezuelan side at two pedestrian bridges that link communities on both sides … and then proceeded to dynamite them,” Silva said.(Reporting by Patrick Markey in Bogota, Editing by Sandra Maler)
