A group of 22 Cubans, including four women, arrived by raft on the island of Guanaja, Honduran officials reported on Thursday, adding that all the migrants are in good health.

The Cubans arrived on the Caribbean island on Wednesday and were given aid by local authorities, a spokesman for the Honduran immigration agency told reporters.

The immigration status of the 22 Cubans will be determined by immigration authorities in Tegucigalpa in the coming days, the spokesman added, although he did not specify where the group will be housed in the meantime.

With this group of rafters, more than 600 Cubans have arrived in Honduras so far this year en route to the United States, according to official figures. EFE
