    800 US-bound migrants in jungle on Panama-Colombia border

    BY AFP 44 MINS AGO IN WORLD

    Around 800 US-bound migrants, most of them from Haiti, Africa, Asia and Cuba, are currently in dense jungle on the Panama-Colombia border, Panama's president said Friday, describing it as "another migration crisis."

    The migrants are in the Darien Gap, a swampy forested area teeming with snakes that lies across the border, Juan Carlos Varela told reporters before heading to the region.

    No roads cross the southern border, and passage by foot is dangerous and uncertain.
