25 May 2022: Villa Blanca, Cuba

A boat carrying 842 Haitians headed for U. S. ended up in Cuba. The group is likely the largest group to attempt reaching the U. S. as Haitians flee from the embattled country. Red Cross officials in the province of Villa Clara said the group was being taken care of at a tourist campground. The group arrived Tuesday at Villa Blanca, about 300 kilometers (180 miles) east of Havana. The Haitians called for help with light signals after their captain abandoned them and cast their boat adrift.
