4 Moroccan migrants found dead off southern Spain

A Spanish official says four Moroccan migrants were found dead near a wooden boat that hit rocks off the southern coast of Spain.
The official with the local Interior Ministry office in southern Cadiz province says a fifth migrant is in serious condition with broken ribs.
Authorities believe around 30 people were in the boat trying to reach Spain illegally. Police have captured two and are searching for others.
The bodies of two men and two women were found at dawn Monday in waters off Cadiz.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity in line with ministry rules.
Every year tens of thousands of Africans try to reach the Spanish mainland or the Canary Islands off West Africa in search of a better life.
