Tourists who enjoy sunbathing and swimming are surprised by the emergence of boats containing nearly 50 migrants pulling around the coast.
a videotape shows about 50 Marko migrants, including 19 children, were on a Zodiac inflatable boat. After the boat reached the coastline, they ran to hide behind a cliff.
Two people were reported to have been detained by police who were called to visit the scene. Meanwhile, hotel and restaurant workers nearby help teenagers who are still on the boat.
The incident occurred at 3:30 p.m. local time on Sunday (08/26/2018) on the beach surrounded by resorts, shops, restaurants and four and five star hotels. “Look at how they ran towards Hotel Sancti Petri Melia,” someone said in the video.
An eyewitness said beach visitors immediately took their cellphones to record the rare moment. “We don’t think they will reach the beach because this is not something normal in this area,” he said. “But they jumped from the Zodiac boat quickly and then climbed rock cliffs,” he added.
So far, the security apparatus has arrested 25 migrants consisting of 19 children and 6 adults. They were taken to the holding center, before being sent home. The authorities are now continuing to search for undiscovered migrants.
“They will be handled differently depending on whether they are adults or minors,” said a spokesman for the Civil Service.
