Moroccan rescue services have recovered the bodies of around 20 migrants in the Mediterranean, a spokeswoman for the Spanish enclave of Melilla said Sunday.

The bodies of the migrants, from sub-Saharan Africa, were spotted Saturday by a Spanish ship, which alerted the rescue services of both countries, the spokeswoman said.

She added that “about 20” bodies were then recovered in Moroccan territorial waters.

A Spanish police patrol boat also found one more body, which was taken to Melilla.
