Boy smuggled into Spain in suitcase

May 15, 2015

Spanish Police have made a bizzare find in suitcase that was traveling across the border into Spain. An eight-year-old boy was found hidden in the suitcase.

When they put the suitcase through the scanner, the operator noticed something strange. The outline of a person appeared on the screen. When the suitcase was opened, they found the boy, from the Ivory Coast, in bad shape.

The woman who the bag belonged to was arrested and will appear before a judge. They boy’s father  was also arrested when he tried to cross the border a few hours later.

Thousands of migrants each year risk their lives trying to enter Spanish territory in search of a better life in Europe. Many Africans try to scramble over the seven-metre fences that separate the Spanish cities from Morocco.

Others smuggle themselves over the border hidden in vehicles and cargoes or try to swim or sail from shores on the Moroccan side.

Earlier this week a 23-year-old Moroccan was found in a shipping container in the port of Melilla. He was dehydrated after four days cooped up without food or water as the container was not opened over the May holiday weekend.

Spelling error: They boy’s father was also arrested when he tried to cross the border a few hours later.

Should be: The boy’s father was also arrested when he tried to cross the border a few hours later.
