Mexico migrant caravan splits over journeying toward US

TRT World says a group of migrants that once numbered as many as 5,000 have split about whether to keep walking through southern Mexico toward the US border.

A group of about 2,000 mainly younger male migrants set out walking on Thursday from the southern town of Huixtla. But about 1,000 migrants, mainly families with children, decided to wait in Huixtla to see if they could get some sort of temporary exit visa. 

The families were tired after walking some 40 kilometres since departing the city of Tapachula, near the Guatemalan border, on Monday.

The goal of almost all migrants is to reach the US border.

Today’s news summary – Paper Talk

Wednesday’s front pages focus heavily on President Joe Biden’s decision to not extend the 31 August withdrawal date of US troops in Afghanistan – despite PM Boris Johnson and other world leaders pleas during a G7 meeting on the Afghanistan crisis.

The papers say it is now the last chance to escape the Taliban, with some describing the situation as a “failure” and slamming President Biden for seemingly backing Trump’s “America first” policy. 

Elsewhere, the papers carry front-page tributes to Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts – who has died at the age of 80.
