West Indies: Vessel carrying Haitians capsizes

The US Coast Guard says a vessel carrying as many 200 Haitian migrants has capsized near the Turks and Caicos islands in the West Indies.


Coast Guard spokeswoman Sabrina Elgammal, a petty officer third class, said the guard has been working with police to rescue 70 people who were stranded on a reef. She said four bodies have been recovered and authorities' main goal is "to get everybody out of the water." (AP)
