New mi­grant car­a­van joins two al­ready en route to US

The Guardian Weekly - - Global Report -

A new group of mi­grants bound for the US set off from El Sal­vador last Sun­day, fol­low­ing thou­sands of other Cen­tral Amer­i­cans flee­ing poverty and vi­o­lence who have taken sim­i­lar jour­neys in re­cent weeks. The group of more than 300 Sal­vado­rans left the cap­i­tal San Sal­vador. A larger group of mostly Hon­durans, es­ti­mated to num­ber at least 3,500, left that coun­try in mid-Oc­to­ber and is now in south­ern Mex­ico. That group has be­come a key is­sue in US midterm elec­tions.

A third group has been mov­ing through Gu­atemala,and has reached a bridge into Mex­ico.
