TEGUCIGALPA (Reuters) - The Honduran security ministry said on Tuesday that an organizer of a migrant caravan travelling north from Honduras was detained in neighbouring Guatemala and will be deported back home in the coming hours.
"The problem is that he (Bartolo Fuentes) did not comply with Guatemalan immigration rules and will have to be returned to Honduras in the coming hours," said ministry spokesman Jair Meza.
U.S. President Donald Trump threatened on Tuesday to withdraw funding and aid from Honduras if it does not stop the caravan.
