Haiti - FLASH : 94 Haitian migrants rescued at sea off Colombia
On Tuesday, the Colombian navy confirmed that it had rescued 94 Haitian illegal migrants aboard the "Jhosua" a small boat that was adrift off the Caribbean coast of Colombia, following an engine failure.

The Haitians, 61 adults and 33 children, were brought back to land safely and handed over to the migration service.

According to the Colombian authorities, the Haitians were trying to reach Panama, which serves as a transit for those who want to travel to South America and the United States by land.

Recall that Colombia closed its borders due to the Covid-19 pandemic last March, interrupting the journey of nearly 2,000 Haitians who have been stranded for months in camps in the jungle along the country's northern and southern borders. .
