Haiti - FLASH : 106 Haitians found locked in a container in Guatemala
Saturday, October 9, following a report concerning an abandoned trailer at kilometer 114 of the road that leads to Cocales Nueva Concepción Escuintla (Guatemala), agents of the National Civil Police (PNC), after hearing cries and blows from inside the container (TC007CBH), rescued a group of migrants locked inside, said Jorge Aguilar, spokesperson for the National Civil Police (PNC).

Aguilar, said that inside the container the police discovered 126 illegal migrants, men, women and children, including 106 from Haiti, 11 from Nepal (South Asia) and 9 from Ghana (West Africa), who were trying to cross Guatemalan territory to cross into Mexico and join the United States.

Apparently they would have been abandoned by the "coyotes" (smugglers) they had paid for the trip...

After rescuing them, the security forces gave them humanitarian attention and then took them to a refuge at the Guatemalan Institute for Migration (IGM).

According to Alejandra Mena, spokesperson for IGM, the group of illegal immigrants in an irregular migratory situation will be expelled from Guatemalan territory and transferred to the border with Honduras because it is through this country that they entered Guatemala.
