More than 2,000 refugees flee south city in Mexico

Tapachula (Mexico), Oct 24 (AP) More than 2,000 refugees, mainly Central American citizens, began moving out of a town in southern Mexico on Saturday where they were reportedly stranded.

Refugees on their way to the US border clashed with police in an attempt to stop them, in which a child suffered a minor head injury, but the refugees are marching ahead.

Thousands of refugees from Honduras, El Salvador and Haiti wait in the southern city of Tapachula for necessary papers. These documents may allow them to travel but the process has been delayed.

Haitians were not among the refugees who left Tapachula on Saturday. Thousands of refugees from Haiti arrived at the US border in Del Rio, Texas in September.
