LONDON (Reuters) - It is "disgusting and wholly unacceptable" of Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro to close borders to humanitarian aid, Britain's foreign minister Jeremy Hunt said on Friday.

"Maduro closing borders to humanitarian aid while innocent Venezuelans suffer is disgusting and wholly unacceptable. The blocking of any aid is inhumane, it must be allowed in. Venezuelans have suffered enough," Hunt wrote on Twitter.
