Nicaragua sends Cuban border-crashers back to Costa Rica


MANAGUA: Nicaragua sent thousands of Cubans back to Costa Rica Sunday after the US-bound migrants stormed across their shared border, accusing San Jose of “deliberately and irresponsibly” sparking a humanitarian crisis. The diplomatic spat erupted after Costa Rica said Saturday it was giving temporary visas to a group of about 1,000 stranded, penniless Cubans, telling them they had one week to cross the country and continue their journey toward the United States.
