|The coast of Annaba in Algeria, from where|
harraga try to reach France or Spain.
AnAnd even worse (see Harraga and Hittistes II).
Today's El Watan (an Algerian newspaper published in French) reports:
Des harraga âgés de 10 ans en Espagne
Several harraga (African immigrants who try to smuggle themselves into Europe by boat) were intercepted earlier this week by the Spanish authorities as they tried to flee across the Mediterranean on "un petit bateau pneumatique" - that is, a small rubber dinghy. This time, it was neither a woman nor a grandfather who was fleeing to the West for a "better life"... but five boys aged 10 and one aged 16.
The children were found on board alone, with no adults accompanying them.
