Cuban migrants escape and more arrive

Immigration officials say 9 more Cuban migrants have been detained. The men are now being processed at the Immigration Detention Centre on Fairbanks Road.

The nine, including two repeat migrants were taken into custody on Cayman Brac after being found walking on the road late Monday night.

Cayman 27 understands they came ashore after their vessel crashed on the ironshore and began taking on water.

Meanwhile, three of the 24 Cubans who were rescued at sea by a cruise ship last week escaped custody. Enforcement officers apprehended the men a few hours after their escape from the detention centre on Wednesday.
