1,000 Honduran migrants break Guatemala police cordon

Farther east, a group of 200-300 migrants left San Salvador, the capital of El Salvador, on their way to the United States.

But while Quinteros, who took part in El Salvador's 1980-92 civil war, said it was "painful" to leave his three children behind, he said the United States is "the country of opportunities". Navarrete said some of the attackers carried guns and firebombs.

The caravan still must travel 1,000 miles to reach the nearest US border crossing at McAllen, Texas, and the trip could be twice as long if the group of some 4,000 migrants heads for the Tijuana-San Diego frontier, as another caravan did earlier this year.

The officers ended the standoff after representatives from Mexico's National Human Rights Commission told police that a rural stretch of highway without shade, toilets or water was no place for migrants to entertain a government offer of asylum in Mexico, which is why police said they set up the blockade. Others went to soak themselves in the nearby Novillero River.

Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu makes rare visit to Oman
Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas also visited Oman this week, according to the official Palestinian news agency Wafa. Oman closed its offices in Israel in 2000 after the outbreak of the second Palestinian Intifada.

Tensions from a long trek through searing heat with tenuous supplies of food and other goods spilled over Saturday night when a dispute in a food line devolved into a beating. Police rescued the man as he was being beaten and took him to a hospital for treatment, though his condition was not immediately clear.

On Sunday, several in the caravan took to microphones to denounce the attack. Kamala Harris made it sound as though it'd be un-American to turn the migrants away: "We are a country that - our strength has always been that we are a tolerant country, that we are welcoming, in particular, to those who have fled harm".

Many members of the caravan have been traveling for more than two weeks since the group first formed in San Pedro Sula, Honduras.

Others complained that images of litter and uneaten food made them appear disrespectful.

Nageswar Rao, an IPS officer considered close to the Modi government, continues to remain the CBI director in the interim period. In extraordinary circumstances, the director can only be removed after an inquiry, which was not done in Verma's case.

As the caravan tries to reach the U.S., the American military has begun delivering modular barriers, used to separate traffic lanes, to the U.S. -Mexico border in conjunction with plans to deploy active-duty troops there, Defense Secretary James Mattis said Sunday.

Mexico's Interior Ministry said that temporary identity numbers have been issued to 111 migrants under the program.

USA senators are urging the Trump administration to make an agreement with Mexico that would stop some of the 7,000 people traveling north from crossing the border.

Earlier this year, officials form the Department of Homeland Security, including Mr. McAleenan and Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, publicly encouraged would-be asylum seekers to ask for refuge at ports of entry, saying that was the only legal way to apply for asylum at the US border. The trip could be twice as long if the migrants head for the Tijuana-San Diego frontier, as another caravan did earlier this year. So, much like the group before them, they stormed Mexico's southern border and forced their way across. The IDs, called CURPs, authorize the migrants to stay and work in Mexico, and the ministry said pregnant women, children and the elderly were among those who had joined the program and were now being attended at shelters.
