Thousands of US-Bound Migrants Storm Guatemala-Mexico Border
Thousands of migrants have arrived at the Mexico-Guatemala border, with some climbing over the fence separating the two countries. US President Donald Trump has threatened to close the US-Mexico border and call in the military.
Photos posted online show some of the migrants breaking down the fence's gate and continuing towards the border bridge.
Mexican television footage showed the migrants being met by dozens of riot police on the bridge who blocked them from entering Mexico. Some could be seen jumping into the river below to get around the block.
The protesters appear to have broken a second gate, this time at the border bridge.
The migrants appear to be using makeshift rafts to cross the Suchiate River. Some can also be seen holding a rope on the riverbank which others are using to cross from a raft to the shore.
