The route, the shortest from northern Africa into Europe, is gaining popularity among migrants looking fleeing conflicts or poverty.


A Spanish Maritime Rescue Service vessel disembarked at mid-day on Friday 44 sub-Saharan African migrants, including three women, at the port of Tarifa.

The service said they had been traveling in five different recreational boats.
