Tuesday, March 24, 2015

Guatemala and Honduras have set up a joint border task force to fight criminal gangs and tackle other causes of migration as part of an attempt to reduce the number of people headed north to the United States, officials said Monday.

The "Maya-Chorti" task force comprises around 700 agents from police, military, intelligence, and migration agencies. It will be based at the Central American neighbors' El Florido crossing and have a 12-mile radius of operation on either side of the border.
