(CNS): Another fifteen Cubans were taken into immigration custody after boat trouble ended their journey, despite their efforts to press on. Government officials said that the group of migrants arrived off the coast of Bodden Town on Wednesday night at around 10pm. The Cubans wanted to carry on with their journey and left Thursday, but they were back Friday after the boat was damaged. Four migrants opted to remain while the rest made another attempt to carry on, but to no avail.
The second attempt failed before it got started and the eleven migrants had to abort the trip due to problems with their
rickety boat. All fifteen were taken into custody, bringing the total number of Cuban migrants at the Immigration Detention Centre at Fairbanks to 73.
Within the last week 15 migrants have been repatriated to Havana, officials confirmed.
