Hundreds of Hondurans have crossed a river into Mexico in a fresh wave of migrants heading to the United States, AFP reporters on Guatemala's border with Mexico said Monday.
Men, women and children crossed the Suchiate River on rafts made from truck tires, or by forming human chains to avoid being swept away. Others swam across after Mexican authorities refused to open a border bridge.
More than a thousand Honduran migrants broke through a Guatemalan police cordon to reach the river the day before, attempting to join a larger caravan walking toward the US border.
