Migrant dies in riot at Mexico facility over virus
Mexico City: A Guatemalan migrant died and more than 20 were wounded in a riot over coronavirus fears at a holding facility for Central American migrants in Mexico, officials said Thursday. Around 95 migrants, mostly Hondurans, protested late Tuesday over conditions at the center in southeastern Tabasco state, demanding their release or deportation back to their home countries.
Several people suffered smoke inhalation injuries after the protest turned violent and bedding was set ablaze. An immigration officer was among those wounded, police said. – AFP
