Migrants Surprise Sunbathers on Spanish Coast

Via Telegraph

A rubber dingy packed with people suspected to be undocumented migrants arrived on a Spanish beach on Wednesday surprising the sunbathers.

An amateur video filmed by one of the beachgoers showed around two dozen of suspected migrants scattering on the beach in Cadiz, on the southern Spanish coast.

Carlos Sanz, who was on the beach, said the group quickly vanished and the police only arrived some time later.

Spanish officials couldn’t immediately be reached for comment after office hours.

Disembarkations by migrants on Spanish beaches aren’t common but have happened before, especially at Spain’s north African enclave cities Melilla and Ceuta, which border Morocco.
