Exclusive: Britain's Hunt sees prospect for Yemen talks, news on Khashoggi inquiry

Mon, 11/12/2018 - 19:39

Following meetings in Riyadh with the Saudi king and crown prince - the main proponent of Saudi military intervention in Yemen - Hunt also said he anticipated "rapid progress" in bringing to justice those responsible for last month's murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. "I was led to believe that certainly the legal processes are going to be starting very soon indeed and we should hear something about that quite shortly," Hunt told Reuters in an interview. Hunt's trip, which included a meeting in the United Arab Emirates with Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, comes as Riyadh, already under scrutiny for civilian deaths in Yemen air strikes, is facing global criticism and potential sanctions over Khashoggi's killing inside its Istanbul consulate on Oct. 2.

Second migrant caravan arrives to Mexico City

Mon, 11/12/2018 - 18:49

By Luis Carlos Rodríguez Mexico, Nov. 12 (Notimex).- The second caravan of Central American migrants arrived at Mexico City this afternoon and went to Deportiva Magdalena Mixhuca, where everything is ready to receive them in a hostel operated by capital authorities and non-governmental organizations . Around one thousand 200 migrants, mostly Salvadorans, make up this contingent, where young people, women and minors stand out, who arrived tired after a trip of two to four hours from the city of Puebla. Visibly tired, some with a cold due to the cold temperatures in the area of ​​Rio Frio, but with the intention of reaching Mexico City, the Central Americans were received with hot food and medical services provided by various authorities such as the Iztacalco mayor's office. Denise, a 28-year-old Salvadoran who travels with her two children aged seven and four, said that while the trip was made by bus from Puebla, the children are already very tired from the journey they started almost three weeks ago from San Savior. "The children are not sick, but they are very exhausted from the days when they walk or sleep on the floor. We hope that here in the capital we can rest a bit to continue towards the United States, " she said in an interview. Jair, a 19-year-old Guatemalan, commented that if he found any work option in Mexico City, he could stay and live here. "My destiny was the United States, but as things are now on the border, if there is work here, I stay a few months and then continue to the border," he added. In the Magdalena Mixhuca, in a large white tent, hundreds of Central American migrants began to enter to rest from this trip from the capital of Puebla. Immediately, staff from various agencies such as the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and non-governmental organizations, began with advice to explain their immigration status and legal options to remain in the country.
