Good weather for boats

The good weather is encouraging illegal immigrants to make the often perilous journey across the Mediterranean in search of economic gain. Perhaps they haven’t heard that Andalucia has 25% unemployment.

A boat carrying at least 7 passengers is currently about 20 miles off the Almeria coast and Marine Rescue are on their way to intercept.

In the early hours of Sunday morning, two boats carrying a total of 23 immigrants were intercepted and the passengers taken to Cartagena. Those on board included three children.
