HAITIANS ALLEGEDLY THROWN OVERBOARD

At least 100 Haitians packed onto a smuggling boat were tossed overboard and may have drowned last month after the ship began to sink on its way to the Bahamas, Haitian officials said last week.

Police arrested 16 smugglers, who charged refugees between $330 and $1,000 for the trip and crammed some into a tiny engine room before throwing them into the sea when the overloaded boat began to sink.
