The United States Customs and Border Protection Agency says it has arrested two Bahamian men suspected of smuggling seven migrants, including Haitians, into the country.

The agency said that the migrants came into the country on a vessel from the Bahamas and that border patrol agents had been alerted to the matter on Saturday.

It said the vessel contained external fuel drums, which would have made it possible for the suspected smugglers to drop off the migrants and return to the Bahamas without stopping to refuel.

The agency said that apart from Haitians, the other migrants were from Colombia, Brazil and Ecuador.
