Family members of Guatemalan migrants involved in a deadly truck crash in Mexico have said they are desperate for news of their loved ones and feel forgotten by governments that offer few opportunities and no protection on the perilous route to the United States.

It was just four days ago that Domingo Yobani Raymundo Mateo, 18, left his small village of Chajul, an Ixil Maya community some 260 kms (160 miles) from Guatemala City, for his second attempt to reach the US. This time, his family sold a house to pay for his journey with the hope he would secure work after crossing the border.
