Haitian migrants cross Colombian jungle en route to US

Hundreds of Haitian migrants trek through Colombia's Darien Gap jungle, crossing river streams and going up swampy roads to reach Panama, their next step towards their dream of a better life in the United States. The Darien Gap -- a 1,430,000-acre (575,000-hectare) jungle is one of the world's most dangerous routes, according to UNICEF. It is infested with armed gangs and drug traffickers who often rob or attack the migrants crossing it.
