African migrants storm Spanish beach after arriving on inflatable boat

UN's Migration Agency Says Migrants Were Pushed From Boats

Tourists on a beach in southern Spain were left shocked when a boat carrying dozens of African migrants landed in front of them.

The boat arrived on Playa de los Alemanes, a beach in the Spanish town of Zahara de los Atunes, near Cadiz.

Sunbathers looked on as migrants jumped out of the small craft and ran up the beach after successfully crossing the Strait of Gibraltar.

A Spanish police spokesman told CNN that one officer was in the area when the migrants arrived on shore.

The spokesman said the closure of migrant camps in Morocco and Algeria may be driving migrants to take greater risks.

The Guardia Civil did not provide any more details about the number of migrants on board, or whether they had since been located.

Spain's maritime rescue service, which includes ships, planes and helicopters, rescues migrants at sea and takes them to cities such as Almeria, Malaga, Tarifa, with the Spanish Red Cross on hand to offer aid from healthcare to food and water. The Moroccan navy rescued seven people from another vessel.

Some of the migrants who stormed the border are seen in the video below celebrating their success in making it to European Union soil.

So far, 8,200 migrants have arrived in the country this year - that's triple the number compared with this time last year and already more than the total for 2016, according to Organization for Migration (IOM).

African migrants are seeking a cheaper and risky path to Europe with a rising number setting sail for Spain from Morocco using toy dinghies and jetskis, migration experts say.

While the average price demanded by smugglers for the journey has doubled over the a year ago to about 1,000 euros (900 pounds), it is still cheaper than other routes, Frontex said. "It's a matter of distance".
