Guatemalan security forces on Sunday clashed with members of a large caravan of Honduran migrants bound for the U.S., just days before the Biden administration takes office. The incoming U.S. administration has urged the travellers to abandon their journey.
A stun grenade was also used to disperse the crowd, according to reports.
Tear gas and sticks were used to beat back the caravan on a road in the region of Vado Hondo, about 55 kilometres from the borders of Honduras and El Salvador.
An unspecified number of people were injured during the clashes.
Even if the migrants do get past, Mexico is preparing to stop them at its southern border with hundreds of security forces members.
