TWENTY immigrants arrived on three boats along the coast between Torrevieja and Cabo Roig.
Guardia Civil intercepted two at sea and the third boat when it reached the coast after the Integrated External Surveillance Service (SIVE) in the region of Murcia had warned of a possible wave of arrival of boats.
The immigrants, from North Africa, were treated by Red Cross volunteers and taken to Torrevieja’s Guardia Civil barracks as the boats were taken to the Marina Salinas.
This is the sixth operating mobilising humanitarian aid and services from the Red Cross so far this year in the province of Alicante and the second to occur this month.
Since August, 77 people have attempted to reach the shore with the main area of concentration being from Santa Pola to Pilar de la Horadada.
