126 migrants were locked in a truck and abandoned in the desert

126 people were abandoned in a transport container, on the side of a road, between two cities in Guatemala. They were found in the morning after people in the area heard screams coming from the truck.

More than 100 of those found in the containers are Haitians trying to flee a country plagued by hunger and poverty.

Local authorities believe the migrants were detained by smugglers who had received money to take them to the United States via Mexico, according to the BBC.

Haitians, Nepalese and Ghanaians are part of the “transport” of smugglers.

“I heard screams, cries and knocks on the truck’s doors. We opened them and found 126 undocumented people inside “, say the representatives of the Colombian police.

The police offered first aid to the migrants and then took them to a shelter run by the Migration Institute. The institute says people came to Central America through Honduras and from there had to go to the United States.

The 126 people will be transported back to the border with Honduras and handed over to the authorities.

Just one day ago, Mexican authorities detained 652 migrants near the US border, including 350 children, traveling in three refrigerated trucks.
