Morocco’s Interior Ministry on Monday denied reports about removing the collections of 45 African vagrants, who were accounted for to have suffocated off the nation’s drift.
Media reports prior said that 45 transients from Sub-Saharan African nations had suffocated on Sunday after their watercraft sank off Morocco’s northern drift.
Nearby experts in the regions of Tangier, Tetouan and Al-Hoceima have additionally denied in an announcement reports about the passing of illicit vagrants off the nation’s drift.
According to the statement, a boat carrying 33 illegal migrants had drifted off the coast of Larache town, but the migrants were all rescued.
Morocco has become a hub for African migrants seeking to reach Europe for a better life. Thousands of migrants are trying to flee poverty and unrest in Africa each year via Morocco to Europe.
According to the International Organization for Migration, more than 1,000 illegal migrants have died in the Mediterranean since the beginning of 2018.
