Bahamas authorities detain more than 100 Haitians


The Jamaica Observer reported that the Royal Bahamas Defence Force (RBDF) detained nearly 200 Haitians who were seeking to illegally enter the country by boat over the weekend. Acting on a tip off, the 199 Haitians were detained off the west coast of northern Andros aboard a wooden sailing sloop.

The article says that the migrants were in urgent need of food and water, which were provided by locals from the Red Bays community and they were later brought to New Providence where they will be handed over to Immigration authority.
