Mexico arrests 13 for extortion of migrants

Mexican authorities have arrested 13 members of a group linked to Central America’s street gangs for allegedly robbing, kidnapping or killing Central American migrants.

The two leaders of the gang are Central American, but the other 11 men arrested are Mexican, suggesting the gangs known as Maras are recruiting in Mexico.

Mexico’s National Immigration Institute said Thursday the suspects were arrested in Arriaga, in the southern border state of Chiapas.

The men had approached a group of migrants waiting to hop a freight train and demanded $100 apiece to allow them to board.

Migrants catch the train known as The Beast to reach the United States.
