Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Spain migrant crisis: Deaths and arrivals surge on Canary Islands” – below is their description.
The bodies of eight migrants have been recovered on Spain’s Canary Islands after their boat capsized on Tuesday. The boat was one of 17 intercepted in the islands’ waters in just 24 hours. The European Union has struggled to come up with a plan which eases the burden on the Mediterranean countries taking most of the strain.

More migrants have arrived in November than in the last four years combined. Al Jazeera’s Charlotte Bellis reports. –Al Jazeera English YouTube Channel
