Thirty-six Cubans trying to reach the United States sailed on a raft to
the Swan Islands (Islas del Cisne) in the Honduran Caribbean, and will
be taken in the coming hours to continental Guatemalan territory,
authorities here said.

The commander of the Honduran navy, Hector Orlando Caballero, told
reporters that the Cubans had sailed across the Caribbean on a single
raft and received assistance from the naval unit posted permanently in
the Swan Islands.

Immigration authorities in Tegucigalpa will determine the status to be
assigned the 36 Cubans during the next few days, Caballero said.

More than 1,500 Cubans have arrived in Honduras to date in 2014, most of
them headed for the United States, according to the authorities. EFE
