    At least ten Haitians died, and around 100 other people were stranded near the Bahamas on Tuesday after an overcrowded 40-foot boat capsized after it ran aground, says the Coast Guard. Rescue craft and a helicopter have been deployed to lift people out of the water, and life rafts and food have been dropped for those still clinging to the hull of the boat.
