Immigrant boat arrives in Tenerife

Europa Press reported that today at 6.00am a cayuco boat was spotted 9 miles south of Punta Rasca in Tenerife carrying 41 immigrants on board. The boat was discovered by the Foreign Surveilance system.

The Guardia Civil patrol boat “Pico Teide” was despatched to rendezvous with the cayuco and the two boats met 4 miles off the coast. Two of the immigrants were transferred to a medical centre at El Mojon and the boat was towed to Los Cristianos Harbour where it arrived this morning. All of the other immigrants were found to be in good health.

The immigrants were taken to a reception centre so that their condition could be assessed. More information about their origin will be made available later.
