A man counts 100-Bolivar-bills in a street in Caracas on December 13, 2016.


Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro ordered on December 12 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 / FEDERICO PARRA        (Photo credit should read FEDERICO PARRA/AFP/Getty Images)
