US-bound migrant caravan sparks Trump tweetstorm

Mexican government has stopped a caravan of Central American migrants trying to reach Mexico-US border as their presence in the country prompted a tirade of criticism from President Trump.

    An annual crossing by more than a thousand Central American migrants into Mexico has prompted a storm of criticism from the US president on Twitter.

    The so-called Easter Caravan is organised by activists who aim to highlight the plight of people escaping crime and poverty and seeking sanctuary in Mexico or the United States

    Donald Trump accused Mexico of failing to do enough to prevent them from entering the US.

    Al Jazeera's John Holman reports from Mexico City.
