Guatemala blocks thousands of people bound for US
BBC, 18 Jan 2021
A group of US-bound Central American migrants has been met with truncheons and tear gas in Guatemala as they attempt to travel on to Mexico, and then the US border.
Thousands of people were intercepted on a road near the border with Honduras on Sunday. The government said it would not accept "illegal mass movements".
Every year, tens of thousands of Central American migrants attempt this perilous journey to try to reach the US, often on foot, in groups known as "caravans".
President-elect Joe Biden, a Democrat, has vowed to end the strict immigration policies of his predecessor, Donald Trump, a Republican.
