REPORT: 44 Undocumented Cubans Enroute to U.S. Detained in Honduras

Honduran authorities detained Monday 44 undocumented Cubans attempting to travel to the United States, police said.

The four women and 40 men were detained in the Caribbean municipality of Iriona for irregularities in their documentation and immigration status, a National Police spokesman told reporters.

The migrants were handed over to immigration authorities, who will be able to issue them a permit to cross the Central American country since their destination is the United States, the spokesman said.

For Cubans leaving their country in recent years, Honduras has become the first stage of their travels to reach the United States.
