400 Central American migrants cross into Mexico

About 400 Central American migrants have crossed into Mexico with the aim of reaching the U.S. border to request asylum

Mexican police looked on as about half the migrants crossed the Suchiate River on inner-tube rafts. The mainly Honduran migrants then walked into the border city of Ciudad Hidalgo to rest in the main plaza.

"The federal police asked us where we were from, or if we had any ties to gangs," said one Honduran, who didn't want to give his name for fear of reprisals.

Mexico has been discouraging mass marches along highways, as migrant caravans did in past months.
