From Typically Spanish Spain News -

A cruise ship has rescued nine illegal immigrants from an open-topped boat some twenty miles off Cabo de Gata.
The immigrants said they had set off from Algeria three days ago when they were rescued on Thursday. They said a tenth man had fallen overboard. A coastguard helicopter was still searching for him on Thursday evening.

A boat carrying an estimated 200 illegal immigrants was meanwhile approaching the south eastern coast of Tenerife on Thursday evening. It was spotted by a Spanish Navy ship, who reported that the passengers were from Pakistan and Asia.

Just for info, it has been officially reported that over 23,000 immigrants have entered the Canary Islands from Jan 1st - Sept 7th this year.
