RABAT, July 4 (Xinhua) -- The Moroccan navy rescued during the last 48 hours 244 Spain-bound migrants, official news agency MAP reported on Sunday.

The migrants, including women and minors, are mostly from sub-Saharan Africa, said the agency quoting a military statement.

They were traveling in several inflatable boats in the Strait of Gibraltar, which separates the African continent from Europe.

Some of the migrants were in a poor health condition and received the first aid from the navy units, before they were brought back to different Moroccan ports, it added.

Morocco has become a transit country for African migrants seeking to reach Europe for better living conditions. Enditem
