Habitantes de la zona denunciaron también movimientos militares inusuales, y al menos una fotografía fue subida a Twitter dando cuenta de la barricada que, según algunos, fue puesta en la vía por funcionarios de la Guardia venezolana.

Francisco Arias Cárdenas, gobernador del estado Zulia, ratificó que apoyaría cualquier decisión que tome el jefe de Estado con respecto a la zona fronteriza de la entidad para evitar el delito de contrabando de extracción que afecta a la población.

The earlier fossil records of mango (Mangifera indica) from the Northeast and elsewhere were 25 to 30 million years old.

An extensive study of the anatomy and morphology of several modern-day species of the genus mangifera with the fossil samples had reinforced the concept that its centre of origin is Northeast India, from where it spread into neighbouring areas, says Dr. Mehrotra.
