Pictures of the Year: Caravans: the new face of migration
Carol Santos, a migrant from Honduras and part of a caravan traveling en route to the United States, fans her baby with a hat as they hitch a ride with fellow migrants in the back of a truck near Sayula de Aleman, Mexico, November 11, 2018. Reuters photographer Carlos Garcia Rawlins: "Getting on the trucks was a very tense moment, the leaders of the caravan tried to make sure that women, children got on first but everyone was so anxious that it often became chaotic. As people climbed aboard this truck a hose broke, everyone was stuck while they waited for it to be fixed. I thought the driver might have been angry, but instead he calmly took out his tools and set to work fixing the problem. Inside, the truck was incredibly humid and hot but no-one moved as they didnÕt want to lose their spot. About 45 minutes later the truck finally set off again."
