Mexico intercepts 1,000 migrants on highway

Some 200 military police officers, immigration agents and federal police officers blocked the advance of about 1,000 Central American migrants who were walking north along a southern Mexico highway. Unarmed agents wrestled some migrants to the ground, but the vast majority complied and boarded buses or immigration agency vans. Many of the migrants say they're fleeing gang violence, oppressive extortion and corruption in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.
