(CNS): At the end of another year which saw a significant number of Cuban migrants passing through the Cayman Islands, the Immigration Department said on Wednesday afternoon, 17 December, that two more Cuban migrants had landed in East End earlier in the day and were taken to hospital.

Immigration officials said that the migrants landed on the morning of 18 December in the vicinity of the Royal Reef Hotel in East End after their vessel was damaged on the reef. Both migrants, who said they had spent about nine days out at sea, were taken to the Cayman Islands Hospital for treatment of minor injuries and dehydration. The migrants are now being held at the George Town Police Station.
