The presidents of Honduras and Guatemala held a joint news conference on Saturday (October 20) to discuss the caravan of thousands of mostly Honduran migrants who set out en masse in hopes of reaching Mexico and ultimately the United States. Some 2,000 Honduran migrants were already back home after giving up on continuing to Mexico, Guatemala's President Jimmy Morales said at a press conference in Guatemala City alongside his Honduran counterpart, President Juan Orlando Hernandez. Hernandez said another 486 migrants were in transit back to Honduras, a roughly 12-hour trip by road. Credit: Reuters
