Guatemalan security forces blocked hundreds of migrants advancing towards the US on Monday.

The government said the road in eastern Guatemala reopened to traffic on Monday after troops and police officers launched teargas and pushed them back down the highway.

Security forces closed in on the migrants just beyond the village of Vado Hondo, some 55km from the borders of Honduras and El Salvador.

The removal of the group was the latest effort by Guatemalan authorities to break up the caravan, which authorities said numbered close to 8,000 people ,within hours of its departure for the US last week.
