37 Bangladeshis among 600 migrants rescued from trucks in Mexico



Some 600 migrants, including 37 Bangladeshis, were found hidden in the back of two trucks in eastern Mexico on Friday.

Most of them from neighbouring Guatemala, the government's National Migration Institute (INM) said on Saturday, reports Reuters.

The INM said 401 of the people were from Guatemala, 53 from Honduras, 40 from the Dominican Republic, 37 from Bangladesh, 27 from Nicaragua, 18 from El Salvador and eight from Cuba.

There were also six men from Ghana, four people from Venezuela, four men from Ecuador, a man from India and a man from Cameroon in the two trailers discovered in Veracruz state.

The institute said 455 of the migrants were male, and 145 female. The people detained would either be sent home or given the chance to have their stay in Mexico regularised, it added.

Most migrants from Central America and the rest of the world who enter Mexico head for the United States and say they are seeking to escape poverty or violence in their homelands.
