More than 100 Haitian migrants rescued at sea

The United States Coast Guard says it has rescued 151 Haitian migrants and handed them over to the Royal Bahamian Defence Force on Friday.

“The transfer is a combination of two separate interdiction cases in which Coast Guard aircrews and cutter crews located and rescued these migrants,” the US Coast Guard said.

It said a Coast Guard Air Station Miami HC-144 Ocean Sentry airplane crew had located an overloaded 40-foot Haitian sail freighter Friday about 35 miles south of Ragged Island, Bahamas.
