Cubans Rescued Adrift in the Gulf

HAVANA TIMES, April 16 — Four Cubans aboard a raft in the Gulf of Mexico were rescued on Saturday by personnel of the Mexican navy, announced the National Immigration Institute.

According to an AFP report, four males between the ages of 38 and 58 were floating adrift on a small makeshift motor boat. After their rescue, they were turned over to Mexican immigration authorities to determine their legal status.

According the Cubaencuentro website, a few days ago a transatlantic cruise ship rescued another 23 Cuban rafters in the Caribbean. These individuals are currently being held in a detention center in Veracruz, Mexico.
