A Turkish ship bound for Morocco has picked up 24 African migrants in the Atlantic off the Canary Islands.
The crew spotted the migrant boat 60 nautical miles off the coast of Gran Canaria and changed its course toward the vessel.
Three children and a pregnant woman were among those rescued.
The woman was taken to hospital via helicopter, while the rest of the migrants disembarked at the port of Las Palmas.
