At least 64 people were found dead in an abandoned trailer in San Antonio, Texas, Guterres said in a statement, who also stressed such a tragedy once again asks for the need for comprehensive strategies for safe, orderly and regular migration in the region.

The UNSG called for cooperative work, in line with the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration and the Global Compact on Refugees, in order to take concrete steps to prevent such unnecessary deaths.

Monday night, US authorities reported 46 people were found dead in an abandoned trailer in Texas, and 16 others were sent to hospital: 12 adults and four children.

According to preliminary reports, the irregular migrants apparently died from the killing hot inside the trailer.

According to statements by the Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, 22 were from Mexico, 7 from Guatemala, two from Honduras and 19 with still unknown nationality.
