OVER  SIXTY PERCENT  of Cuban migrants  who were stranded in Panama trying to get to the United States have already traveled to Mexico says the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

They  had been housed in temporary shelters in the Darién and Chiriquí.

According to the Foreign Ministry, 2,448 people have been flown  to Mexico, where they will presumably be transported to the U.S.

The government arranged  low-cost airline tickets to Mexico until May 20.

The immigrants had been stuck in Panama after Nicaragua and Costa Rica refused to let them enter their countries.
