Mexico finds 200 migrants hidden in lorry

Nearly 200 undocumented migrants from Central America have been found hidden in a lorry without food or water in north-eastern Mexico, reports BBC.

The men, women and children were found crammed into the truck in Tamaulipas state just south of the Texas border, officials said. They had travelled from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador and were bound for the US. Three people have been arrested on suspicion of human trafficking.

Mexican police said the lorry was stopped at a checkpoint and scanners detected the people hidden inside.
