23 immigrants intercepted off the Almeria coast

Twenty-three people from the Maghreb, including one woman, were intercepted on Tuesday afternoon about 40 miles southeast of Cabo de Gata in Almeria.

The boat was spotted at around 14:00 by a Navy plane and Marine Rescue vessels were sent to intercept. The passengers, all in apparent good health, were taken to Motril where the Red Cross were on hand to offer assistance.
