At least 17 migrants have died in the past 24 hours while trying to cross the sea from North Africa to Spain.

However, rescuers picked up more than 100 others, the Spanish coast guard said on Tuesday.



Two rafts were found in the Western Mediterranean between the Iberian Peninsula and Morocco and Algeria with 80 people aboard and 13 dead.

They were taken to the Spanish North African enclave of Melilla, the coast guard said.

The coast guard also found four bodies and rescued 22 men in the Atlantic off the southern Spanish city of Cadiz.

Spain has now become the main destination for undocumented migrants and refugees from Africa and the Middle East trying to reach Europe.

More than 47,000 people made the treacherous journey to Spain, often on flimsy dinghies and rafts from Jan. 1 to Oct. 30, according to the UN International Organisation for Migration (IOM).

Almost 600 deaths have been recorded in that same period, the IOM said.

Through 2018, there have been almost 100,000 arrivals throughout the whole Mediterranean, with almost 2,000 missing or dead.

Gantz refuse’s Netanyahu offer on unity government

Netanyahu’s surprise move was an abrupt change of strategy for the right-wing leader. Its rejection could spell weeks of wrangling after Tuesday’s election, which followed an inconclusive national ballot in April.

Gantz’s centrist Blue and White party emerged from the second round of voting this year slightly ahead of Netanyahu’s Likud, but also short of enough supporters in the 120-member parliament for a ruling bloc.

Netanyahu, Israel’s longest-serving leader, said in a video clip in which he urged Gantz, the country’s former military chief, to meet him “as soon as today”, that he had pledged during the election campaign to form a right-wing, Likud-led government.
