    Officials say 25 Haitians in an open vessel were found June 9 in the waters west of Mona Island off Puerto Rico. They were taken Tuesday to Cap-Haitien, Haiti.

      According to the Coast Guard, 31 Cubans were picked up June 13 in three separate incidents in the Florida Straits. They were taken to Bahia de Cabanas, Cuba.
