Spain'south rescue services look for for boat with twenty-seven aboard

Spain'south maritime rescue service says it's deployed ships and aircraft in a look for for a boat believed to be carrying twenty-seven people in the southern Mediterranean Sea.

The service said a Spanish Navy ship joined in the look for Saturday for the boat that's thought to be transporting migrants trying to reach Europe from Africa.

Rescuers on Friday picked up seventy-six migrants, including twenty-two who'd disembarked from a boat onto a tiny Mediterranean island and fifty-four who'd been aboard a small boat.

Thousands of migrants attempt to reach Spain each year either by attempting to enter the country'south N African enclaves of Melilla and Ceuta or by making dangerous sea crossings to the mainland.
