The migrants were massed on a bridge connecting the two countries early on Monday morning in what appeared to be a tense standoff with Mexican migration officials and soldiers.

Hong Kong tense as weekend of protests begins with teachers' rally in rain

Hong Kong tense as weekend of protests begins with teachers' rally in rainOver a thousand Hong Kong school teachers braved thunderstorms on Saturday to start a weekend of anti-government demonstrations that some activists fear could see tougher police tactics on the city’s streets.
