Spain-based migrant aid group Walking Borders announced that at least 325 people have disappeared on 3 migrant boats sailing from Senegal to Spain’s Canary Islands.
It was stated that there were about 65 people on one of the boats and at least 60 people on the other boat, while there were about 200 immigrants on the other boat.
On the other hand, it was informed that the immigrants were missing for 15 days and their families could not reach the immigrants.
“The families are very worried,” said Helena Maleno Garzon, a human rights activist for Walking Borders. There are about 300 people coming from the same area of Senegal. “They left their country because of the instability in Senegal,” he said.
The Canary Islands, which is one of the main destinations of immigrants trying to reach Spain, is expressed as the place where the heaviest migration of immigrants is experienced, especially in the summer months.
