Guardia Civil have recovered the bodies of two Moroccans, one of whom is believed to be a child, from a boat that reached Spain’s coast after crossing the Mediterranean Sea with migrants and a hashish shipment.
Two others were found on the boat suffering from hypothermia on Saturday, after being alerted to the arrival of a boat near to the coast of Malaga.
Police also found six kilograms of hashish near the boat. They suspect that the drugs belonged to boat’s owner and the pilot, who police were looking for along with three others.
Police have located eight more Moroccan men from a total of 15 people they believe to have been on board.
At least 17 migrants died when attempting the perilous run from North Africa to Spanish shores last week, one of the worst weeks for migrant deaths this year.
