Perejil Survivors Expelled from Morocco (News)

The 11 rescued survivors from the boat that sank near the Spanish island of Perejil this past Saturday have been deported from Morocco.  AFP quoted a Moroccan official saying “By order of the prosecutor, the 11 African escapees left Tangiers at about 2100 GMT (on Sunday) during an expulsion operation.”  The survivors, from Niger and Senegal, were probably expelled into Algeria.  While Moroccan officials believe there were 42 migrants on the boat, the Spanish Red Cross estimates the number at approximately 60.
