The Lesser Of Two Evils: Riding La Bestia

Shadows move across the tracks as La Bestia, the train known as The Beast, approaches from the southern Mexican state of Chiapas into the state of Veracruz. (Lorne Matalon)

Fronteras Desk Correspondent Lorne Matalon spoke to Julian Worricker of the BBC World Service on July 19.

They discussed  La Bestia, which Matalon rode, in the context of the thousands of unaccompanied minors who are reaching the United States border from Central American countries.

The exchange is  not available on the BBC website, but you can listen to the interview here.
