Mexico: Migrants rest in Chiapas city of Tapachula as 'migrant caravan' proceeds

Mexico, Tapachula, Chiapas
October 30, 2018 at 23:02 GMT +00:00 · Published

Central American migrants were seen resting on the streets of the Mexican city of Tapachula in Chiapas, on Tuesday, as 1,500 more reportedly joined the 'migrant caravan' crossing the country towards the United States border.

Footage shows migrants resting on the streets and in the city's main square, as people prepare food and distribute water.

Honduran migrant Nelvi Antonio Serrato has undertaken migration on crutches, after an accident reportedly suffered in his native Honduras.

"It is very hard. Everything is an effort in life, because in our country there is a lot of violence and a lot of poverty at the same time," Serrato said.

Many migrants have been travelling for more than two weeks, since a group first formed in San Pedro Sula, Honduras. They must still travel 1,600 km (1,000 miles) to reach the US border.
