Four migrants have died yards from shore in southern Spain after being forced out of the speedboat they were traveling in, Sky news reported.
The Spanish government press office in the southern province of Cádiz said 31 other people from the boat, including six children, survived the incident and four were taken to a hospital.
The press office said 27 passengers were forced out by the vessel’s drivers near Camposoto beach, which is where the four died. Another eight were forced off close to another beach, it added.
Officials said the migrants were from unspecified North African countries.
