The 168 migrants rescued last Thursday by the Tagus River patrol boat of the Civil Guard in front of the port of Nuadibú (Mauritania) and they were heading back to Senegalhave begun to land in the port of the city of Saint Louis, on the northwest coast of the country.

Sources from the Ministry of the Interior have explained to EFE that the patrol boat arrived hours ago in Saint Louis where they have begun the transfer of migrants in groups to another smaller boat, since the Río Tajo patrol boat could not travel the 50 meters that separate the jetty due to the shallow water.

The boat of the Civil Guard sailed from Nouadhibou this Monday after the final refusal of the Mauritanian authorities to receive the migrants who had been rescued by the Spanish vessel.

In this way, the Government opted for the transfer of the 168 immigrants to Senegal, the country from which the rescued canoe originally left for Canary Islands.
