Twenty-five Cubans Arrested in Honduras

HAVANA TIMES — A group of 25 undocumented Cubans who were traveling to the US were arrested by Honduran authorities on Saturday night and handed over to immigration officials there, reported AFP.

The migrants, who include men and women, had entered through a “blind spot” along the Nicaraguan border, but are now being held at the Immigration Office in Choluteca, 130 km south of Tegucigalpa.

The authorities in that country have assigned the detainees a stay status based on humanitarian grounds, though most are likely to be returned to Nicaragua.

This past December, another 15 undocumented Cubans who were traveling to the US were intercepted in that Central American nation.
