Mexican Federal agents detained 64 illegal immigrants from Ecuador and other Central American countries in the southeastern state of Chiapas, the Mexican National Migration Institute (INM) said on Monday.

The detainees included 10 Ecuadorian, 48 Guatemalans and six Salvadorians who were traveling in a freight truck intercepted Sunday at the Ocozocuautla-Las Choapas highway in the state of Chiapas which borders Guatemala, the INM said in a statement.

The detainees, who boarded the truck in a ranch in Chiapas heading towards Mexico City, said they were trying to reach the United States in search of work.

At least 800 illegal immigrants from Latin America, most of them from Guatemala and El Salvador, have been detained in Mexico so far this year, according to official statistics.
