Over a hundred illegal immigrants in several boats came ashore in the municipality Albuñol but the Civil Guard managed to round up 91 of them.
A boat landed on Playa del Búho within the municipality of Albuñol and another on Playa Juana, which borders with Adra.
Emergencies Andalucía 112 received news from the Guardia Civil of these landings and despatched a team from Red Cross and the municipal police forces of Adra and Albuñol around 08.45 on the 25th of September.
According to some of the immigrants in custody, about 120 people were travelling in three boats, distributed along the lines of 30, 40 and 50, according to the size of the craft.
As soon as the boats reached the beach, the immigrants (all of whom were Moroccan men, except for a woman and two minors), fled inland to reach the greenhouses area where many hid. Drivers phoned in to report that they had seen groups of people fleeing across the road without checking for traffic in their desperation.
Many of the immigrants that the Civil Guard captured were wet, disorientated and in a state of shock sitting beside the N-340, some requiring medical assistance.
The Guardia Civil officers ferried those detained in their patrol cars to Temporary Holding Centre in Motril Port, finishing the task by about 13.30h, thanks to the arrival of a Guardia Civil bus used to transport prisoners with room for 20 passengers.
