A private US flotilla carrying humanitarian aid arrived in Cuba in a bid to support what its sponsors say is a growing pro-democracy movement there, AFP reports from Key West, Florida.

The boats -- mostly small craft whose total number was not given -- arrived Sunday in a port near Havana after sailing Saturday and Sunday from this southern Florida port, according to the Key West group Basta which organized the initiative.
