00:27 | 00:36 Immigration officials say 9 more Cuban migrants have been
detained. The men are now being processed at the Immigration Detention
Centre on Fairbanks Road.
The nine, including two repeat migrants were taken into custody on
Cayman Brac after being found walking on the road late Monday night.
Cayman 27 understands they came ashore after their vessel crashed on the
ironshore and began taking on water.
Meanwhile, three of the 24 Cubans who were rescued at sea by a cruise
ship last week escaped custody. Enforcement officers apprehended the men
a few hours after their escape from the detention centre on Wednesday.
