New migrant caravan sets out from Honduras for US

SAN PEDRO SULA, Honduras (AP) — Another caravan of Central American migrants has set out from Honduras seeking to reach the U.S. border, following the same route used by thousands last year.

About 600 migrants gathered under a steady rain at the bus station in the violent city of San Pedro Sula and set out in the darkness, hours before their intended Tuesday departure.

About 300 people, mainly women and children, clambered aboard 30 small buses, intent on reaching the Guatemalan border.

Another 300 or so began walking toward the border town of Agua Caliente late Monday. One passing man asked a journalist for his umbrella, saying he feared his daughter would get sick in the rain.

More people continued to arrive at the bus station, making it likely the caravan’s numbers would grow.
