Ecuadorian and Colombian migrants detained near The Bahamas

The Royal Bahamas Defence Force (RBDF) detained several foreigners on Sunday during a search and rescue mission at sea.

RBDF reported that the Operation Bahamas Turks and Caicos (OPBAT) team received information that a boat was disabled as it traversed through adverse weather near the Bimini Islands.

An aircraft was dispatched to investigate and found six persons on board.

A Contender craft was sent to the distress site near North Bimini, and the crew rescued two Bahamians and four migrants from Ecuador and Columbia.

They were handed over to the Royal Bahamas Police and Immigration for processing.
