Ciudad Hidalgo (Mexico) (AFP) – Hundreds of Honduran migrants broke through a Guatemalan border barrier and forced their way onto Mexican territory Friday, as riot police tried to keep them from advancing past a border bridge and continuing their trek toward the US.
Multiple migrants, federal police and journalists were wounded as the crowd hurled rocks and other objects at the security cordon on the Mexican side, an AFP correspondent said.
Chanting “Yes we can!” and “Mexico! Mexico!” hundreds of migrants climbed or violently tore down a series of barriers leading to the final fence and police line on Mexico’s southern border.
