Haitians brave Amazon to reach Brazil

Migrants say prospects of better lives in Brazil outweigh risks of hazardous trip through jungle.

    In the last five years an estimated 350,000 people from South America have migrated to Brazil's capital, Sao Paulo, which is known for its large economy and many jobs.

    Haitians, who often have no choice but to migrate illegally through the Amazon, have been coming in large numbers.

    Al Jazeera's Gabriel Elizondo reports.
