Mexico: Migrants march on through Veracruz after bus offer withdrawn

Thousands of Central American migrants travelling through southern Mexico advanced into the Mexican state of Veracruz on Saturday. Veracruz governor Miguel Angel Yunes had earlier confirmed that some 160 passenger buses would be provided to transfer migrants to the country's capital. However, the offer of free bus transport was cancelled hours later, with the state governor citing a water... Еще shortage in the city. The Veracruz route, which leads to Texas, avoids a high-altitude climb via Mexico City. Many migrants have been travelling for more than two weeks, since a group first formed in San Pedro Sula, Honduras. They must still travel around 1,600 kilometres (1,000 miles) to reach the US border.
