SHARE CAPTION ONLY: CUBAN FREIGHTER ATTACKED

A Cuban freighter floats about 40 miles off the Florida coast Saturday after Cuban gunboats fired on the vessel, laden with refugees, for more than four hours. The Coast Guard airlifted four of the seven injured to a Key West hospital. About 60 people were on board. The boat and its remaining passengers were waiting for official word to come ashore.
