Mexican authorities have detained 13 U.S.-bound Cuban migrants whose
makeshift boat reached the country's Caribbean coast after an engine failed.
Cancun police spokesman Esteban Romero says hotel security guards
spotted the group early Tuesday. He says the Cubans told police they
were headed to Miami when one of their boat's engines died and currents
carried them to Mexico.
Romero says the 10 men and three women were treated for dehydration and
lack of food. One also had an ankle injury. The group has been turned
over to migration officials, who will send them back to Cuba.
