400 migrants rescued from sea in one week

MARITIME rescue service Salvamento Marítimo has picked up 183 people, attempting to make the dangerous crossing from North Africa to Spain.
This brought the total number of migrants rescued in the Western Mediterranean to nearly 400 in the last week alone.
And, according to the Spanish rescue service, a further 73 migrants, including 10 children, had been rescued from three boats in the Straits of Gibraltar.
Meanwhile another 110 people have been taken to Malaga after being rescued in the Alboran Sea. And similar operations last week saw coastguards rescue 208 migrants in just 24 hours.
These followed the news that more than 150 African migrants made it to Spain, after climbing over two huge fences, into the Spanish enclave of Ceuta.
