Cameroon migrants travelling to US released from traffickers in Guatemala

Guatemalan authorities released 21 migrants from Cameroon, who were being held by traffickers in a house in Escuintla.

The video filmed on Wednesday (September 11) shows the migrants from Cameroon sitting lined up against a wall.

Among the migrants are 15 men and 6 women, one of whom is pregnant. The migrants were transferred to the migration department of Guatemala to be repatriated to their country of origin, Cameroon.

The traffickers were not caught and the Guatemalan authorities explained that they believe that the migrants had paid these traffickers to transfer them illegally to the United States.
