Jet ski smugglers tackled by police
Spanish authorities have broken up a Moroccan gang that used powerful jet skis to smuggle migrants across the Strait of Gibraltar.
Police say each jet ski carried between one and three migrants and a skipper over the less than 10 miles from Morocco to Spain.
The overall total of migrants crossing the Mediterranean Sea from Africa on jet skis is relatively small, but their use has increased sharply.
