Spanish coastguards have rescued almost 600 people from 15 boats and a jet ski in the waters between Morocco and Spain, spokesman said.
In perhaps one of the busiest day in the calendar of the Spanish coastguards, 600 migrants on board 15 vessels, toy paddleboats and a jet ski were rescued as they attempted to sail across the waters between Morocco and Spain to seek refuge in Europe.
At least 35 young people, including a baby, were among the flow of migrants crossing the Strait of Gibraltar and the Alboran Sea as they fled unrest or poverty in their countries, he said. The United Nations has said that over 9,000 migrants have arrived in Spain since the beginning of the year, triple the number during the same period last year.

Meanwhile, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) stated that 128 migrants' death occurred throughout 2016 while attempting the same route as the 120 that drowned.
Italy is the main stopping point for migrants crossing to Europe, but Spain is expected this year to overtake Greece as the second-largest gateway.
