SAN DIEGO — Authorities have captured a boat that apparently was trying to smuggle 20 people into the U.S. from Mexico.

The Border Patrol says an aircraft spotted the 30-foot panga boat before dawn on Tuesday about 30 miles off the coast of Del Mar in San Diego County.

The boat finally was stopped about 12 miles from Oceanside.

Thirteen men and seven women were detained.

Authorities say they plan to charge two of the men with human smuggling.
