Body of ‘migrant’ boy found washed up on Spanish beach

THE body of a small boy, aged six to seven-years-old has been found on a beach in southern Spain.

The grim discovery was made in the municipality of Barbate in Cadiz province, near the Trafalgar lighthouse.

A government spokesman said the hypothesis is that he was a migrant trying to get to Europe.

He added that bodies of other people, also believed to be migrants, travelling from north Africa  had washed up on the coast, further east, a couple of weeks ago. The bodies of three men were found near Algeciras and the body of a man and woman were discovered at Bolonia, near Tarifa.

The authorities are investigating to see if there is a link.
