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.
