Guatemalan police rescued migrants on Saturday

Guatemalan police rescued 126 migrants who were left in a container on the side of a highway.

They were found during the night between the cities of Nueva Concepcion and Cocalis, after residents reported hearing screams coming from inside the trailer.

Authorities believe these people were abandoned by smugglers who were paid to bring them to the United States via Mexico.

More than 100 of the people found are from Haiti, which has been hit hard by the crisis. There were also people from Nepal and Ghana.
