The bodies of five migrants suspected to have died of dehydration and heat stroke were found in a railroad car in northern Mexico near the United States’ border.
Mexico’s National Institute of Migration (INM), which disclosed this to newsmen, identified the victims as three Hondurans, a Mexican and another unidentified person.
According to the INM, railway security personnel found the bodies after seeing a foot sticking out of a moving railroad car near the city of Piedras Negras.
Reports says that thousands of United States-bound undocumented migrants, most of them Central Americans, enter Mexico each year, fleeing poverty and violence.
