SPANISH police are said to have brought down a people smuggling ring operating from this country.
Officers claim the ring charged those living in Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and India up to €20,000 to secure them visas to Algeria before bringing them by boat to Spain.
According to the National Police, the group would house people in properties near the Moroccan border before a boast took them to the southern coast of Spain. Following an investigation, police believe they have identified those responsible and arrested 11 people in Spain.
