Mexico City (CNN) -- Mexican authorities said they found and detained more than 500 illegal immigrants from Central America and Asia who were crammed inside two tractor-trailers heading toward the United States on Tuesday.
X-ray equipment detected the immigrants at checkpoints in the southern state of Chiapas, the state attorney general's office said. The drivers of both trucks sped away after authorities ordered them to stop, but police apprehended them nearby.
Inside the tractor-trailers, they found 513 people from El Salvador, Ecuador, China, Japan, Guatemala, India, Nepal, Honduras and the Dominican Republic.

This should be told to Indians calling us Beggers on Times of India blogs. Mostly people writing comments on Times of India news blogs write Pakistan as "Beggistan". They need to see their face in the mirror.

Law enforcement in the Mexican state of Chiapas found the trucks at a security checkpoint using x-ray equipment. They found hundreds of individuals packed together in terrible conditions, like sardines. Between the two trucks there were 513 people who were hungry, dehydrated and holding on for dear life to the cargo ropes that had been strung between the walls for them to keep themselves upright.
