Bay Radio News | September 9, 2020

A group of migrants being held at a dockside camp on Gran Canaria called for “freedom” yesterday as they tried to force open a police fence as the coast guard brought in more people rescued from boats in the Atlantic.

Arrivals to the Canary Islands have surged 573% to 3,933 migrants.

A coast guard spokeswoman said 81 North African men were rescued from three small boats while another 29 reached the island on their own boat.
