Police and migrants clash outside Mexico City


A large group of thousands of migrants from across Latin America, which has slowly been winding its way through Mexico, has clashed with police.

Sunday's clash happened as the group approached the capital, Mexico City.

Their plan was to reach the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, a Catholic pilgrimage site in the capital.

But police blocked the migrants, saying they should first spend the night at a hostel set up for that purpose, before continuing on their way.
