Cuban nationals allowed to head back to sea

A group of Cubans who washed ashore near Boca del Rio on Ambergris Caye in the early hours of Wednesday December twenty-ninth was cleared by the Immigration and Nationality Department earlier today to continue its journey across the Caribbean Sea.  The seven Cuban nationals who drifted southwest to Belize in a makeshift vessel outfitted with an improvised engine experience mechanical difficulties on the high seas.  The wooden craft shipwrecked on San Pedro Town and its occupants were briefly detained by police while they conducted an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the wreckage.  Following a thorough health inspection and the repair of the vessel the refugees were allowed to depart the country.  From what we know, they Cubans were heading to the Cayman Islands but drifted to Belize.
