Ten Central American migrants were kidnapped in northern Mexico on the same day they were freed from a first abduction, a human rights group said Thursday.
The military rescued at least 40 migrants on March 19 in Reynosa, a city bordering the United States, according to Amnesty International.
But 10 of them, most from Guatemala, were snatched again as they headed to a shelter run by the Roman Catholic Church.
"Their whereabouts remain unknown," Amnesty said in a statement, lamenting that the migrants had not been afforded any protection by authorities.
