    A deadly flu outbreak in the United States' largest detention facility in Texas has forced officials to move hundreds of detainees.

    The decision came after a 16-year-old Guatemalan migrant, Carlos Hernandez Vasquez, died after getting sick in captivity.

    He came without his family and is the sixth child to die in the US Border Patrol custody since September.
