The 'Maduro diet': Venezuelans hit by food crisis

This week, we tell you more about the food crisis in Venezuela. The economic crisis has left people lining up outside emptying supermarkets, desperate for food. And the situation is now hitting the population's health. Many Venezuelans have been inadvertently losing weight. Some have even started joking about the "Maduro Diet".

And one of America's greatest landmarks is in danger. The Grand Canyon is  increasingly threatened by man-made dangers, as Catherine Clifford reports.
