SEVENTEEN sub-Saharan migrants were rescued on Monday (March 23) 25 miles off the southeast coast of the Scratif Cape in Motril. Amongst them were two women and a baby.

The rescue operation was carried out by Salvamento Maritimo (Spanish sea search and rescue organisation) at around 7.48pm, when a ship that was sailing in the area noticed a dinghy and alerted the authorities. They had also been alerted by a sea worker in Nador (Morocco).

Upon their arrival at Motril Port, the immigrants received medical treatment from the Cruz Roja and then handed over to National Police.
