Costa Rica officials report that more than 2,000 migrants – Africans and Haitians – are presumed to have crossed into Nicaragua illegally; the number of migrants less in Costa Rica waiting to move north.

Although at first the drowned are believed to be Africans, more likely they are Haitians, in Costa Rica posing as Africans to claim a right of asylum.
