Mexican Federal Police officials have found 65 severely dehydrated and hungry migrants from Bangladesh and Sri Lanka wandering on a highway in the Gulf coast state of Veracruz, ABC News reported on Thursday.

The federal Public Safety Department of Mexico has said that the migrants recounted a long, complicated trip in a bid to reach the US border.

The migrants said that they set out on April 24 from an airport in Qatar and flew to Turkey and Colombia.

From there, they moved through Ecuador, Panama and Guatemala before reaching Mexico.

“Once in Mexico, the migrants said, they boarded boats and travelled on the Coatzacoalcos River, though it is not clear why. The river does not lead anywhere near the US border,” the news report said.
