On Thursday, December 12, the Bahamas repatriated 113 Haitians in an irregular migration situation to Haiti (via a Bahamasair flight which left the archipelago at 10:10 a.m.) bound for Port-au-Prince.

The group included the 39 undocumented Haitian migrants arrested Wednesday on a small island off the south coast of Great Inagua.

Note that with this flight of 113 Haitians, 453 compatriots have been repatriated since the passage of Dorian.
