Eleven migrants rescued at sea
Eleven migrants were rescued at sea on Wednesday in two separate incidents, the Royal Gibraltar Police said.
In the first incident, a police launch was despatched one mile south of Europa Point after officers received information of a small boat in the area.
Police, accompanied by vessels from the Gibraltar Defence Police and HM Customs, located a small rigid-hulled dinghy carrying eight Moroccan males.
The males were taken to the RGP Marine Base where they were checked by paramedics and arrested on suspicion of being non-Gibraltarians in Gibraltar without any valid permit or certificates.
They were then taken to New Mole House police station, where they remain in custody pending a court appearance.
Later on Wednesday, at about 12.35pm, a kayak carrying three further males was also intercepted by RGP Marine Section about half a mile from Europa Point.
The males were also checked by ambulance staff once on land and arrested for the same offence.
They too were taken to New Mole House pending a court appearance.
