Global News published this video item, entitled “3 Nigerian stowaways found on ships’ rudder in Canary Islands after 11-day voyage” – below is their description.
The Spanish coastguard on Monday rescued three migrants stowed away on the rudder of a ship that arrived in the Canary Islands from Nigeria.
In a photograph distributed on Twitter by the coastguard the same day, the three stowaways are shown perched on the rudder of the oil and chemical tanker Alithini II.
The 183-metre ship, sailing under a Maltese flag, arrived in Las Palmas in Gran Canaria after setting out from Lagos in Nigeria on Nov. 17 and navigating up the West African coast, according to Marine Traffic.
The ship’s captain confirmed to the Red Cross that the ship had sailed from Nigeria 11 days earlier.
Canary Islands migration advisor Txema Santana told Reuters it was up to the ship’s operator to take care of stowaways unless they apply for international protection, or if they have any health exceptions.
