TOPSHOT - Venezuelan National Guard personnel stand guard behind a barrier on the Simon Bolivar bridge on the Colombian border with Venezuela, on December 12, 2016.
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro on Monday ordered the border with Colombia sealed for 72 hours, accusing US-backed "mafias" of conspiring to destabilize his country's economy by hoarding bank notes. The closure came a day after Maduro signed an emergency decree removing Venezuela's largest bank note, the 100 bolivar bill, from circulation because of what he called a Washington-sponsored plot against his country's troubled economy. / AFP / SCHNEYDER MENDOZA        (Photo credit should read SCHNEYDER MENDOZA/AFP/Getty Images)
