Migrant boat intercepted near Dania Beach pier

A group of migrants have been intercepted by federal authorities off the South Florida coast.

Thirteen migrants were spotted about two miles from the Dania Beach pier.

Sky 10 was above the boat as the migrants had their hands on their heads.

A U.S. Customs and Border Protection boat and Coast Guard boat were nearby.

Authorities had their guns drawn as the migrants were boarding the Coast Guard boat one at a time.

Two of the migrants were pulled onto the Customs boat and handcuffed with zip ties.

The blue boat with a sail had writing on the side that said "Dios Delante."

It was not immediately known from where the migrants came.
