Migrants die as boat sinks off US


At least 10 people died after a boat carrying nearly 30 migrants - most of them Haitian - sank off the coast of southern Florida, US officials say.

Captain Mike Fitton says the group left Bimini last night heading to South Florida and their boat capsized or collided with something in the early hours of the morning.

The survivors were rescued off the coast of Boynton Beach, Florida.
