A woman originally from Cuba trades her Cuban flag in for an American flag during a naturalization ceremony August 30, 2007 in Fort Lauderdale, FloridaA flotilla of Cuban exiles left Florida's Key West Saturday to commemorate the drowning of 37 migrants -- including 10 children -- who fled their communist homeland two decades ago. Three boats carrying 25 people headed out to sea in the early afternoon from this picturesque part of the United States bound for waters some 12 nautical miles (22 kilometers) from the Cuban capital Havana. Survivors and members of the Cuban exile community refer to the events of that day as a "massacre," contending that several vessels intercepted the tugboat, that it was attacked with powerful jets of water and that it sank after it was rammed. Ramon Saul Sanchez, the head of the Miami-based "Movimiento Democracia" (Democracy Movement) exile group that organized the flotilla, said the boats would not enter Cuban waters.
