Reports reaching us indicates that four illegal migrants, including a 15-year old girl were found hidden inside vehicles attempting to leave Morocco.
Three vehicles reported were stopped at customs in Beni-Enzar in a space of just three hours, between 9am and 12pm, and inside the cars, were the teenage girl and two other men, believed to be 20 and 21 years old.
One of them was hidden behind the rear seats and the other two were in the dashboard. Two of the three had to be stabilized by medics after showing symptoms of asphyxia, disorientation and generalized pain in the joints due to the way in which they had been travelling.
They were discovered in Beni-Enzar and Melilla. A fourth truck was then searched in the Spanish port of Melilla, and officials found a 20-year-old young man in the base of the vehicle.
The young man had to be helped out of the truck due to the dangerous nature of his hiding place. It was discovered that the man had ‘taken advantage’ of the driver’s carelessness to get into the spot.
The Civil Guard said the drivers of the intercepted cars, all of Moroccan registration, have now been detained and will go to court.
