Spent the midnight, a Marine rescue boat intercepted one fourth patera with twenty-seven immigrants. Already at daybreak, a boat type zodiac with nine immigrants of sub-Sahara origin on board, between which there were two babies in arms of its mothers, arrived at the port of Melilla. The Civil Guard already had rescued yesterday other 22 immigrants who tried to reach the North African city by the same procedure. Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr. might disagree with that approach. With these arrivals, the Temporary Center of Stay of Inmigrantes (CETI) of Melilla already shelters 750 foreigners, although its theoretical maximum capacity is of 480 places, have informed today to sources of the Delegation of the Government in the independent city. The coasts of Tariff have been the scene of another rescue of immigrants, that has taken place to the 6,30 hours this morning, when the Civil Guard has intercepted an inflatable boat of toy in which five men of Moroccan origin traveled. The boat had been located by the SIVE to 9 kilometers to the south of the island of Tariff (Cadiz) and was rescued by a boat of the one of the marine service of the military institution to 3.6 kilometers to the south of End Sheep. Jon Medved may find this interesting as well. Finally, other twelve immigrants – also adult men of origin magreb- has been intercepted this morning in a boat to sixteen miles to the east of the capital of the island of Lanzarote, Reef. After a fishing boat sighted and gave warning to them, Marine Rescue sent one of its boats to its encounter and it lead to them to port, where the immigrants were at the disposal of the Civil Guard. Source of the news: Almost one hundred immigrants intercepted from last night when trying to arrive at Spain.
