    The governments of El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala and Mexico are providing humanitarian assistance to several thousand U.S.-bound migrants left stranded on Mexican soil after a railway bridge collapsed, the Salvadoran Foreign Ministry said.

    The respective consulates are also helping the migrants find shelter, contact their families back home and – on a voluntary basis – facilitating their repatriation, the statement said, urging Salvadorans not to undertake the dangerous journey through Mexico.

    Roughly 3,500 mainly Central American migrants have been stuck for nearly a month in Coatzacoalcos, a city in the Mexican Gulf coast state of Veracruz, according to the Mesoamerican Migrants Movement.

    A freight train, known as “The Beast,” used by many Central Americans to reach central Mexico on the long trek to the United States, derailed on June 17 between Medias Aguas and Tierra Blanca, Veracruz.
