An all too familiar sight - a boat bringing illegal immigrants.

They just keep on coming.

Twenty-two boats bringing illegal immigrants have so far been intercepted by the Guardia Civil this year. The latest two appeared on Sunday morning. At quarter to five, the maritime service intercepted a boat with fifteen people near to Cap de Ses Salines in Santanyi. A second boat had landed on the coast of Ses Salines itself, and a search for its occupants was conducted. Fifteen more people were detained.

With one exception, all thirty, believed to be Algerian, are now undergoing the normal procedure of transfer to a mainland detention centre prior to deportation. The one exception is a minor, who will be looked after by social services.
