Maritime Rescue services yesterday intercepted an inflatable craft carrying 74 people, 16 miles south-east of Lanzarote.

58 men, 12 women and four minors, all of African origin, were on the boat and apparently in good health. The boat was escorted to the main pier in Arrecife where passengers were attended by the Cruz Roja. Three of the migrants were taken to the Dr José Molina Orosa Hospital for checks.
