Drowned migrants return to El Salvador for burial on MondayThe young father and daughter who drowned in each other’s arms last week in an attempt to swim across the Rio Grande to the United States have been returned to El Salvador for an expected burial at a private ceremony in the capital Monday. Photographs of Valeria, lying face down in the water with her little arm wrapped around the neck of her father, Oscar Alberto Martínez, broke hearts around the world and underscored the dangers that migrants undertake in trying to reach the U.S. The father and daughter were swept away by the current in the river between Matamoros, Mexico, and Brownsville, Texas.
