Spain saves 26 migrants from sinking boat in Mediterranean
Spain's maritime rescue service said it has saved 26 migrants, including one pregnant woman, from a boat that was taking on water as it tried to reach the European coast during the night. The migrants were 15 miles south-west of the Atlantic coastal town of Barbate, which lies between Cadiz and Gibraltar. The maritime rescue boat "Salvamar Gadir" found the struggling smugglers' boat early on Friday. Emergency services for Spain's southern Andalucia region say the 20 men and six women were all of the North African descent.
