Coast Guard interviews rafters rescued by 2 cruise ships – CNN.com

(CNN) — The U.S. Coast Guard is interviewing 21 people picked up by two cruise ships off Florida this week to determine their nationalities and whether they should be sent home, a spokesman said Saturday.

The rafters are in Coast Guard custody, Petty Officer Mark Barney said.

He would not disclose their countries of origin, though one of the ships involved in the rescue, the Carnival Conquest, said the 13 people it picked up are Cuban.
