5 victims from the collision of two ships in Cuba


At least five people were killed when a ship in northern Cuba bound for the United States collided with a Cuban coast guard vessel.

The news was reported by the Cuban state media.

The ship reportedly sank after the accident near Baia Honda, about two hours from the capital, Havana.

A minor and three women were among the victims, while 23 people were rescued.

Cuban officials said an investigation into the crash is underway.

Between October 2021 and August 2022, the US Coast Guard apprehended more than 4,600 Cubans trying to reach the US by boat, nearly six times more than in all of 2020.
