Senegalese authorities dispute reports of 300 missing immigrants

300 people traveling on three migrant boats from Senegal to Spain’s Canary Islands reportedly disappeared last week but the Senegalese authorities deny the claim.

Walking Borders on Sunday said two boats, one carrying about 65 people and the other with between 50 and 60 on board, had been missing for 15 days since they left Senegal for Spain.

But Senegal’s foreign ministry on Tuesday cast doubt on what it described as the publication on social networks of reports of the disappearance at sea of at least 300 Senegalese migrants who left Kafountine for the Canary Islands.
