Cuban migrants force way into Costa Rica

Thursday, April 14, 2016


Costa Rican officials say some 1,200 migrants have crossed into the country illegally from Panama after some attacked a government immigration office at the border.

Security minister Gustavo Mata said that migrants from Cuba and unspecified African nations forced their way into Costa Rica at Paso Canoas. He says they damaged a vehicle and clashed with police, before some were sent back to Panama.
