Washington : At least 20 people died and 58 are missing after a sailboat packed with Haitian migrants capsized to the southeast of the Bermuda Islands, a spokesman for the US Coast Guard Service said Friday.
Luis Diaz said the incident took place near the Turks and Caicos Islands as a police vessel towed the sailboat, which was carrying some 150 Haitian migrants. The police managed to rescue 63 people.
The US Coast Guard has already rescued 195 Haitian migrants in Caribbean waters this month, and 909 since the beginning of the year, not including the latest incident.
