NASSAU---The police are investigat-
ing the circumstances surrounding the
discovery of eight bodies on the beach
in Grand Bahama early Saturday.
They initially found six bodies,
including that of a child, on a beach
at Holmes Rock. Shortly after, two more
bodies were discovered near a sunken
boat, half-a-mile from shore.
According to the police, it s believed
that all eight were illegal immigrants who
were trying to make their way to the US.
Assistant Commissioner of Police
Hulan Hanna said further checks were
carried out along the shoreline and at
sea to ensure that there were no other
"We got the assistance of the Amer-
icans and they took us about a half
mile from the shore, and we were able
to see a boat submerged in the water.
Outside of the boat, two bodies were
seen on the floor of the sea."
He said assistance was being sought
to refloat the boat as additional bodies

"We are hoping that our regional

enormity of what we met here cannot
be emphasized enough....please for

do it to put your life at risk and the
greater tragedy is the fact there is a
child who has no more chance at life
because somebody took a decision to
have the child accompany them to this
ill-fated journey," Hanna said. (CMC)
they are pleased with the turnout
on Friday as more than 1,000 peo-
ple took to the streets here to protest
homosexuality and a proposal to
legalise gay marriage in Haiti.
The protesters carried anti-gay
placards and chanted songs in
which they threatened to burn
down parliament if its members
make same-sex marriage legal.
A Haitian gay rights group has
said it plans to submit a proposal
allowing homosexuals to wed, but
a coalition of religious groups said
it opposed recent laws in other
countries supporting gay marriage.
The demonstration was organ-
ised by several religious groups,
including one calling itself the
Haitian Coalition of Religious and
It came 48 hours after watch-
dog groups held a news confer-
ence to condemn what they say
is an increase in threats against
homosexuals in the country.
Gay rights groups in Haiti say
that members of the country s
lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans-
gender community often don t
report rights violations to author-
ities out of fear of reprisal. (CMC)
