About 150 Haitians stranded on an uninhabited Bahamian island were on their way back to Haiti after being rescued by the U.S. Coast Guard. Coast Guard Lt. Warren Haskovec said that the cutter Bear picked up the emigrants from Cay Lobos, about 250 miles south of Florida, after each was interviewed by agents of the Immigration and Naturalization Service at the request of the Bahamian government. Haskovec said the Haitians, who all seemed to be in good health, were expected to arrive back at Port-au-Prince today.
