This is the moment suspected migrants arrive at a beach and run in different directions after getting off the boat in southern Spain.
The boat reportedly arrived this Sunday at a beach called Los Lances in the area of Waikiki in the municipality of Tarifa in the province of Cadiz in the Spanish southern autonomous community of Andalusia.
The footage shows the boat on the seashore while several suspected migrants are still getting off it on a cloudy and windy day.
Then the immigrants are seen running in different directions.
A spokesperson from the Spanish Maritime Rescue Office told Central European News (CEN): “We can confirm that the boat arrived yesterday morning but we did not have time to intervene”
Reports said that around 30 inmigrants arrive at the beach and they had already run away from the scene when the Spanish Civil Guard arrived shortly after.
Last week, 58 African migrants were rescued from a stranded vessel 36 miles off the Spanish coast in the Mediterranean Sea while four died at sea and up to 16 are believed to be missing.
The migrants’ boat was located 36 miles off the coast of Melilla, a Spanish autonomous city on the north coast of Africa that shares a border with Morocco.
