The Royal Navy saves 257 sub-Saharan migrants in the Mediterranean and the Atlantic

Coastguards of the Royal Navy, on maritime patrol in the Mediterranean and the Atlantic, rescued, during the Aid Al Adha holiday period from July 9 to 12, 257 candidates for irregular migration, having tried a perilous crossing aboard makeshift boats, kayaks and even swimming, we learned from military sources.

The people rescued, mostly sub-Saharans, including women and children, an Afghan and a Yemeni, were transported safe and sound to the ports closest to the Kingdom, after having received the necessary care on board the Combat Units of the Royal Navy, we said from the same source.
