(Reuters) - Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez said on Twitter on Friday he had requested permission from Guatemala’s government to send civil protection agents to help Hondurans in Guatemala and was seeking transport for those wishing to return home.

Hernandez sent the tweets as thousands of Central Americans from a migrant caravan that began in Honduras last weekend were camped on Guatemala’s border with Mexico. U.S. President Donald Trump says the caravan must not be allowed to reach the United States.
