Up to 43 mi­grants aboard three makeshift ves­sels were res­cued last week off the coast of Almería by the emer­gency ser­vices. In the first in­ci­dent, a boat car­ry­ing 12 north African men was in­ter­cepted by a mar­itime pa­trol ves­sel, the Sal­va­mar Spica, some 19 miles to the south east of Cabo de Gata. While trans­port­ing the mi­grants to the port of Almería, the crew re­ceived a new alert about a se­cond ves­sel that had been spot­ted 27 miles south west of Cabo de Gata. Twelve more peo­ple were picked up, join­ing the 12 al­ready res­cued. In a sep­a­rate in­ci­dent, 19 mi­grants – in­clud­ing a woman and a mi­nor - were res­cued 18 miles east of Cabo de Gata. All were re­ported to be in good health.
