A young Cuban girl and relative of Rafael Diaz stands in the kitchen of Rafael's mother in Havana, June 8, 2005. Rafael Diaz along with another 12 Cubans, including six children, sailed across the Florida Straits in a 1949 Mercury taxicab converted into an unwieldy vessel but were intercepted by the U.S. Coast Guard on Tuesday about 20 miles (32 km) off Key West. A U.S. Coast Guard official said Cubans were setting out in unseaworthy vessels that could easily capsize but in Rafael Diaz' impoverished Havana neighborhood, residents have no doubt the risks are worth taken.
