Cubans with engine trouble dock in East End

| 03/02/2014

(CNS):  Eighteen Cuban refugees aboard a 30 foot sail boat arrived in East End on Sunday having already passed through CaymanBrac waters. Officials said that there were no children on board and that the migrants intended to continue their journey once the boat was repaired. Although official Cayman Islands policy dictates that no one is supposed to assist the refugees, it is understood from sources that they were given some supplies to help them on their journey to Honduras. None of the migrants opted to land and it is believed the vessel is now out of Cayman waters.
