Miami Herald- Alfonso Chardy

A U.S. Coast Guard cutter docked Thursday at a Cuban port to return 25 Cubans intercepted in the Florida Straits during a smuggling voyage last month that ended when the boat carrying them capsized and a six-year-old child drowned.

The crew of the Coast Guard cutter Key Biscayne deposited the 25 Cubans at the port of Bahía de Cabañas, in western Cuba, at 10 a.m. Thursday, according to a Coast Guard statement issued in Miami.
