Miami, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 29th May, 2021 ) :The US Coast Guard was searching Friday for 10 people missing off Florida after a migrant vessel with 20 Cubans capsized.
A Coast Guard crew was on a routine patrol Thursday when it spotted people in the water.
The Coast Guard did not describe the vessel that the group came on, though it is common for Cubans trying to reach the United States by sea to take crude boats not suitable for navigating the Straits of Florida.
Cuba's deepening economic crisis has sparked an increase in the number of people seeking to escape the island.
