LA CRUZ, Jan. 14, 2016 - Cuban migrants arrange their belongings at a shelter in La Cruz, Costa Rica, on Jan. 13, 2016. Mexico received on Wednesday the first group of 180 Cuban migrants, out of around 8,000 who have been stuck for two months in Costa Rica after seeking to get to the United States. It was part of the pilot program, after an agreement was signed between Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Mexico and Panama, to fly them over Nicaragua, which had shut its borders in November. The group arrived by bus to Ciudad Hidalgo in Chiapas from Guatemala where they were met by agents from the National Migration Institute (INM). (Xinhua/Kent Gilbert) (fnc)
