The Judicial Police of the Civil Guard are investigating the circumstances in which an immigrant who arrived this Saturday morning died in one of several small boats that have made landfall in western Almeria.
Investigation sources have told EFE that early this Saturday Two boats with 34 and 46 people have reached the coast of Adra (Almería) and El Ejido (Almería), respectively. In the first one was the deceased who, according to what the occupants of the boat have transferred to the police authority, died at some point during the journey.
As the newspaper ‘Diario de Almería’ advances in its digital edition, and sources close to the case have confirmed to EFE, a third boat has arrived in this area shortly after with about fifty peopleso that the landings have occurred on the beaches of Guaínos, Guardias Viejas and Censo beach and have added about 130 migrants this Saturday.
The sources consulted have pointed out that the boats would have set sail from Morocco and that they are “narco-boats”, although this classification is due to the fact that they are the ones habitually used by drug traffickers, with large displacement engines, and not because, in addition to immigrants, they transported narcotics.
A canoe with 52 migrants on board has arrived by its own means at the Los Cristianos pier, in the municipality of Arona, in Tenerife, according to sources from Maritime Rescue and the Emergency and Security Coordination Center (Cecoes) 1-1-2.
