Facts and figures on child migrants heading to US

Central American immigrants get on the so-called La Bestia (The Beast) cargo train, in an attempt to reach the Mexico-US border, in Arriaga, Chiapas state, Mexico on July 16, 2014The arrival of huge numbers of unaccompanied Central American children at the southern US border has overwhelmed authorities in the United States lacking the financial and legal means to curb the illegal influx. President Barack Obama has insisted new arrivals will be sent home, but it remains unclear how much that has done to stem the flow — although officials say the number of apprehended child migrants has decreased recently. The White House said a flight deporting 40 women and children back to Honduras served as a "signal" that new illegal immigrants were not welcome. On Friday, Obama meets with the presidents of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras to collaborate on ways to prevent young Central Americans from taking the perilous journey overland through Mexico.

Russia under fire as train with MH17 bodies leaves rebel station

US President Barack Obama arrives to speak to the press on Ukraine outside the Oval Office at the White House in Washington, DC, on July 21, 2014Western powers on Monday ratcheted up the pressure on Moscow over the Malaysian plane disaster, as a train loaded with some 280 bodies was finally allowed to leave a rebel-held station four days after the jet crashed in strife-torn east Ukraine. With global fury mounting over the limited access given to investigators in the aftermath of the crash, the insurgents blamed for hampering the probe pledged to hand over two black boxes recovered from the plane to Malaysia. The move came after US President Barack Obama insisted that Moscow force pro-Russian insurgents controlling parts of east Ukraine to cooperate with an international probe into the disaster, and said chaos at the impact site was an "insult" to families of the victims. Moscow, which has drawn ire for failing to rein in the rebels, backed a UN Security Council resolution condemning the downing of the plane and demanding access to the crash site.
