The attacks took place outside the Siglo XXI immigrant detention centre in Tapachula near the Guatemalan border and have been going on for days, as the migrants demand “free transit through the country to reach the United States,” according to VOA News.

Mexico has been stepping up its southern border security under pressure from President Donald Trump, who threatened to impose tariffs on Mexican goods if the country didn’t do more to stem the flow of migrants from Central America.
