October 30, 2018 -- The Pentagon says it is sending 5,200 troops to the U.S.-Mexico border in response to the anticipated arrival of groups of Central American migrants travelling north towards the region.

General Terrence O’Shaughnessy, the head of U.S. Northern Command, said 800 troops were already en route to the Texas border and 5,200 would be headed to the southwest region by week’s end. Some of the troops will be armed. Three helicopters will be deployed and enough razor wire will be made available to cover 250km of the border

O’Shaughnessy said the military would work alongside U.S. Customs and Border Protection to shore up the border beginning in Texas, followed by Arizona and California. The troops will join the more than 2,000 National Guardsmen that U.S. President Donald Trump has already deployed to the border.

A 4,000-strong caravan of mostly Honduran migrants, who left their country in mid-October, is moving through southern Mexico towards the U.S. border. A second group of migrants has since arrived at Guatemala’s border with Mexico, and a third caravan has left El Salvador.


21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
